Do you ever get bored of eating the same old thing for breakfast? I do, believe me, I do but sometimes I decide to be innovative and try new foods for breakfast, just to see how it would work out. Well, let me introduce you to Luisa’s Delicioso Layered Fiesta Dip. Now, for the record, I’m perfectly aware that this is designed to be a ‘let me dip my nacho into this dip’ kind of dip. But, I decided to take this to the next creative level and did the ‘let me see if this will taste good for breakfast on toasted pita/bread/something’. I purchased the mild dip it at my local grocery store.


Product review: What happened?

The day after I purchased it, I ate it for breakfast on top of a well toasted bagel (notice the similarities to the friendly nacho chip?). I scooped a good helping out of the container and made sure to include each layer onto my bagel.
First thing I noticed is that the lid is incredibly hard to open which is a good thing, I guess, because it means your food is securely stuck inside the tub. But, it doesn’t exactly speed up morning breakfast especially when my hands are still asleep (just like the rest of my body).
Next thing I noticed was the sprinkled cheese on top – it was sparse and aside from adding a different colour to the dip, it did nothing for the dip. There was so little sprinkled cheese that from a gimmick perspective, you could call it another ‘layer’ in your dip but really, it was more like an afterthought.
As for flavour, I certainly welcomed it to my breakfast meal as something new that even had a little protein given its bean layer.  But, I’ve made better layered dips myself back in the day when I had more time to spare and I’ve tasted other brands that are more robust in flavour and I don’t just mean in terms of heat. The complexities of the dip that I would have expected given that it is a layered dip were noticeably absent.

Verdict:

Would I buy Luisa’s Delicioso Layered Fiesta Dip again? Probably not. For starters, it was an imported product. I admit it, I read the label wrong. I read a local address but it turns out that the local address imports the dip. So, then I have to ask myself: is it really that good that it’s worth the time and distance on the road to get to my home? No.
It also wasn’t exactly affordable. I’m not sure how much it will be at your local grocery store but for the price I paid, I expected more flavour and depth in the dip beyond the heat/spicy tingle.  Honestly, I don’t think it would have even made a difference if I had paired the dip with nacho chips.
How can I best describe it? I told my husband that after eating it, I felt like I had eaten nothing. There just wasn’t a lingering memory of it for me and when food is forgettable, that can’t be a good thing.

    I agree. This was completely disgusting. It tasted like nothing and felt like it was loaded with artificial flavour. The sour cream was gross and not enough cheese. The guac did not even taste like avocado. I can’t believe it was $7. There are so many better products out there – I don’t know how this is even out in the market????? Do not buy!!!

    1. admin says:

      Hi Sara, thanks so much for your comment. Great minds think alike because I know what I tasted when I had that Luisa’s Delicioso layered fiesta dip. They say it’s delicious but that is so the opposite of what the reality is. If they want to stay on the market, it would advisable if they re-visited how they make this dip. I agree with you on all accounts. Until they fix it and change it and make it better, I’m not buying it anytime soon. Hope you’ll visit our site again in the future.

    bought this dip as well… its cheese flavoured shreds… very artificial tasting. just a bad quality dip. im glad i wasn’t the only one that felt this way! i too was fooled by the local label!

    1. admin says:

      Hi Ruby, thank you so much for your comment about the Luisa’s Delicioso Layered fiesta dip. I was in the dip aisle this weekend and looked at the Luisa’s dip sitting there on the shelf and I just don’t understand why it has to taste so completely tasteless. I mean, all those ingredients taste great usually. Combine them and you should technically have a winnner of a dip so Luisa’s obviously is doing something different during the processing of those ingredients. Subpar quality of ingredients maybe? I have no idea but they need to change the recipe or that dip is not going to be at my grocery store much longer. After all, an unhappy consumer is only going to be fooled once. Hope you’ll come back and visit our site again soon and thanks again for the comment! From the family at http://www.thingsthatwedo.com

After all, money is always tight and so it’s always good to make informed consumer decisions. Our family were not big fans of the Luisa’s Delicioso layered fiesta dip. It lacked flavour and the texture was just off. It hasn’t come back to our home. It’s not something we would normally buy and it’s definitely not going to make it back in our home ever again. Let us know if you try any good dips! Hope you’ll visit us again soon. From the family at: http://www.thingsthatwedo.com

    I bought that dip the other night and thought it was terrible.
    I’m in the process of going to every website that mentioned it and sharing my opinion of how it tastes.

    1. admin says:

      Hi Joe, thank you so much for your comment. This Luisa’s Delicioso dip is the exact opposite of how you think it’ll taste. It looks promisng when in fact, it’s an absolute flop. Hopefully more people will read this post and read your feedback so they can avoid this dip at all costs! Hope you’ll visit us again soon. From the family at: http://www.thingsthatwedo.com

    boy o boy !!! I LOVE IT !!! THis IS amazing Dip !!! Can’t believe you people who don’t like it . yumm

    1. admin says:

      Hi DeAnna, thanks for your comment! This is the perfect example to showcase the differences of our taste buds. I’m glad you liked it but I just wished there was more cheese on top or maybe a sharper cheese? Not sure. I haven’t tried it since but good to know that others are enjoying Luisa’s Delcioso Layered Fiesta Dip. Actually, do you eat the mild one or have you tried the medium/spicier versions? I’m not one for spicy dips (can’t handle it) but am wondering if the flavour profile is more intense and zesty if I were to adventure beyond the mild dip? Let me know when you have a moment!

    I was searching on the internet about Luisa’s 5 layered dip and found this really great blog, thank you. The dip looks good but that is as good as it gets. My opinion, the dip tasted sour bad nasty sour and not sour from the sour cream. I couldn’t tell if it came from the guacamole or the black beans, the sour taste just got worse and there was no other flavors. Major disappointment.

    1. admin says:

      Thanks for your comment! This was one of my earlier product reviews and I was so disappointed by Luisa’s 5 layered dip. You’d think by now they’d try to fix what’s wrong. Guess NOT. If they were smart, they’d change it because goodness knows I’ve told enough people and I’m obviously not the only one that’s upset by it. I couldn’t agree with you more. It’s just off in more ways than one.
      Thanks again for commenting! Jenna, ThingsThatWeDo.com
