Layered Taco Flag Dip

 Layered Taco Flag Dip

The ultimate make-ahead patriotic dish for a crowd!! Fun taco flavors and it’s delicious!!

Use a 9X13 dish-fill horizontally… like a flag.


*An off-set spatula is a great tool for this recipe, helps to get in the corners.


*Be sure to spread the layers to the edges evenly so the flag is uniform and the finished dish will look even and flag-like.
