Mexican Layered Party Dip

So… It’s not 100% mexican because it has sweet Chilli, but you will forgive me when you realise how amazingly delicious this is. It’s a showstopper and so incredibly easy and quick!

This recipe comes to me care of a couple of friends/family who have  brought similar dishes to get-togethers, but I did what i usually do and change things up a lot.

Use the Cream Cheese that comes in a tub, not a block, it won’t be soft enough as a block.

If you want to take this dish to another level, substitute the red onion for spring onion, and add some fresh coriander!

Place a blob of sweet chilli sauce on the bottom of your serving dish, this will help the cream cheese not stick to the bowl and make it easy to scoop up.

Mexican Party Dip


  • 250 gram tub of Cream Cheese, softened
  • 2 teaspoons Taco Seasoning
  • 2 medium tomatoes, de-seeded, and diced into tiny cubes
  • 1 extra large avocado or two normal sized ones
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 red onion, diced into tiny cubes (or spring onion)
  • Handful of fresh coriander (optional)
  • 1 large packet Corn Chips
  • 3-4 Tablespoons Sweet Chilli Sauce


  1. Use a large flat based serving dish, preferably with sides. If you don't have one large enough to accommodate the dip and the cornships, serve the dip seperately.
  2. Place about 1 tablespoon sweet chilli sauce in the middle of the dish.
  3. Soften the cream cheese in the microwave on very low power until just soft enough to mix easily. Mix in the taco seasoning until a smooth paste forms. Spoon this on top of the sweet chilli sauce.
  4. Gently mash the avocado with the lemon juice so there are till some small chunks for texture. Spread this on top of the cream cheese mixture.
  5. Very finely dice the de-seeded tomatoes and onion and mix together. Add the coriander if using. Spoon on top of the avocado.
  6. Garnish with 2-3 Tablespoons of sweet chilli sauce (less is more in my opinion) and spread the corn chips around the outside of the dip.
  7. You know what to do! Enjoy!!
