We love to have cookouts and entertain in the summer and this recipe complements just about any spread I put out. Serve this dip with your favorite tortilla chips, crackers or veggies and just watch it disappear.

Talk about disappearing…when the guys have their friends over, this dish barely gets out to the porch before I see hands loaded with chips coming my way. We never have leftovers of this dip, but if we did I would cover it tightly and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Heat the refried beans, I used canned beans, in the microwave for 2 minutes. The beans should be easy to spread out with a spatula.

Stir the taco seasoning into the sour cream until well combined. Spread the sour cream over the refried beans. Easy enough.

Salsa layer of patriotic layered dip

Spoon the salsa over the sour cream. I used a jar of salsa for this step. To keep it from being too wet, I strained out some of the juice first.

making tin star shape cutouts of cheese

Cut a few thin slices of cheese off the block of white cheddar before shredding it. I used the small star cutout from the set I bought to cut stars from the cheese to decorate the top of the dip.

Shredded cheese layer for dip

Shred the remaining cheese with a stand grater. This copper box grater looks great hanging from a pot rack in my kitchen.
