Enjoy Spicy Mexican Bean Dip two different ways! Perfect for Game Day munching, Hot Pepper Jack Bean Dip will satisfy your creamy, cheesy cravings, and Spiced Up Mexican Seven Layer Dip is a fresh take on a classic.
I used a clear 8x8" (2 qt.) dish for the Spiced Up Mexican Seven Layer Dip so that you could see the different layers. I suggest using a wider, shallower dish than a standard serving bowl. This way the dip isn't so tall and you have a better chance of scooping up multiple layers at once onto your chip!
I err on the side of caution and wear disposable, powder-free gloves when chopping jalapeno peppers so that I don't burn my fingers.
The Hot Pepper Jack Bean Dip can be made ahead of time and then reheated for serving. Because of the avocado in the Spiced Up Mexican Seven Layer Dip, I suggest preparing it soon before serving.
Feel free to scale up/down the quantities of ingredients here to yield a smaller or larger quantity of dip(s).
