Layered Hot Mexican Dip

Hot Layered Mexican Dip by Easy Life Meal & Party PlanningOne of the reasons I love food is because it often times invokes great memories. It is one of the rare things in life that can do this with any frequency. The Layered Hot Mexican Dip recipe always makes me reminisce about a wonderful week my family spent with my sister's family  in the Colorado mountains. This is a recipe that my sister,Shawna Williams, concocted that week and it was a big hit with both families.
It remains a favorite weekend snack for my family and I make it frequently. My husband sometimes requests this as his main meal while watching a night football game or NASCAR. 


Ingredients
1 pound ground hamburger, cooked and drained
16 ounce refried beans
1 1/4 cups sour cream
3 ounces cream cheese
7 ounces of green chilies
1 cup salsa (depends on thickness of salsa - I use a fairly thick salsa)
2 cups Mexican blend shredded cheese
1 cup mild cheddar
Tortilla Chips
Shredded lettuce (optional)

Directions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  
Spray a 9 inch square pan or 9x11 casserole dish with cooking spray. 
Spread all of the refried beans on the bottom of the casserole.
Mix 3/4 cup of sour cream with the cream cheese, stirring to thoroughly incorporate.
Spread the sour cream cheese mixture on top of the layer of beans.
Sprinkle half of the chilies on top of the sour cream mixture. 
Spread half of the hamburger on top of the sour cream and chilies layer.
Sprinkle 1 1/2 cups of the Mexican blend cheese on top of the hamburger.
Spread the remaining sour cream (not mixed with cream cheese) on top of the hamburger.
Sprinkle the remaining chilies on top. 
Spread the remaining Mexican Blend and Cheddar Cheese on top.
Lightly cover with tin foil.
Bake for 1 hour, removing the foil approximately 20 minutes before completion.
Note:  (This recipe is based on the 9 inch square pan which makes the dip fairly thick.  If you are using a larger pan then you will bake for approximately 45 minutes, removing the foil 20 minutes before completion.)
Let set for 5 minutes before serving.
