Next time you're going to make a seven layer dip, think again. Try this fantastic fajita dip instead. The fajita seasoning mixed with chopped chicken and veggies really tastes like fajitas from a Mexican restaurant. A cool and creamy cream cheese layer adds an element of tanginess to the dip. Guacamole and cheese make everything better. This is going to be a huge hit at your next gathering!
