Christmastime is the time of year we all like to gather around the fire, cozy up in our ugly sweaters, and enjoy the company of family and friends.

This year we’re having a fun holiday party to celebrate and I thought I would make a party dip recipe that is not only delicious but super easy to make.


Easy Christmas Party Dip Recipe #gatherwithRotel

Why is this Christmas party dip so easy? Because we’re using all readymade ingredients and there’s no cooking involved.

Totally my kind of dip! The star of our show is RO*TEL® Original Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies.

Something we always have stocked in our cupboards.

We go through several cans each week. From taco salad to tostadas, we love our tomatoes and green chilies. RO*TEL gives us bold, adventurous flavors, and provides just the right amount of kick to any recipe.

Let’s get on with our easy Christmas party dip recipe!

Best 5 Layer Christmas Party Dip Recipe

For this recipe, I grabbed our tree-shaped pan to make it extra Christmasy and festive for our holiday party.

Of course, you can serve this easy Christmas party dip with tortilla chips, peppers, crackers, or your favorite dipping food.

I’ve placed a copper baking pan beneath the tree and filled it with red and green tortilla chips!

Adding a spoon for people to scoop some dip onto their plates is a great option.

We made this dip and brought it to my brother’s house for a recent holiday gathering.

My sister inlaw’s mother couldn’t say enough great things about this dip.

She was amazed at how delicious it was and thought it was the best thing since sliced bread! So let’s get to the recipe, shall we?

Step 1 – Refried Beans

Start with refried beans near the trunk of the Christmas tree and spread the layer across the base of the tree.

Step 4

Next comes a row of guacamole.

Step 5

The next layer is a row of shredded mild cheddar cheese.

You can use your favorite cheese in lieu of the cheddar, but mild cheddar is a neutral cheese that most everybody likes.

Step 6

Repeat the rows until you get to the top of your decorative holiday shaped pan.

For a Christmas tree pan that gets narrower, you’ll use less as you go to the top. So use more of each ingredient near the bottom (ex. 3/4 cup guacamole near the bottom of the tree and 1/4 cup near the top).
