7 layer dip recipe

7 layer dip recipe -layers of salsa, guacamole, sour cream, beans, cheese, pico de gallo and olives. The perfect appetizer for game day or a friends gathering. People will gather around this layered taco dip until it’s gone!

This is a classic recipe I’m sure most of you are familiar with and love. It’s one I often forget about (since it’s way too big for my little family), but it’s perfect for family gatherings. What’s not to love? Plus it is so easy to put together! There’s also fun ways to add variations to this seven layered dip. You can make your own guacamole and salsa. You could even make your beans from scratch and add all kinds of seasonings. I like to generally keep things simple though.

How to make 7 layer dip

  • Layer the beans on the bottom
  • Next layer the sour cream and guacamole
  • Pour the salsa on top
  • Add some cheese
  • Then add your favorite toppings such as tomatoes, green onions, olives, jalepenos, cilantro

Decorating tip: One way to dress up this 7 layer dip recipe is by putting it in a trifle bowl. You can even put it in the mini trifle bowls OR plastic cups for individual servings. I also added a fun chalkboard label to the front of the dish. We also love to make this Mexican layer dip in a 9×13″ dish as well so it gets more spread out. You get more of the toppings in every dip!

Yield: 12+

Prep Time: 20

Total Time: 20

Ingredients:

  • 1 (31 ounce) can refried beans
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened, optional
  • 1 package Taco Seasoning
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 2 cups guacamole
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups chunky medium salsa
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 roma tomatoes, diced and drained of juices
  • 1 (4 ounce can) sliced olives or jalepenos, drained
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped (more to taste)
  • 1 bunch green onions (sliced thin), optional
  • 1/2 lime, optional
  • s&p to taste
  • Tortilla chips or fritos for servings

 

Directions:

In a small bowl stir together beans, cream cheese (if desired) and taco seasoning. I like to microwave the cream cheese for about 20 seconds beforehand, to make sure it's smooth and creamy. Then spread the beans onto the bottom of your dish. You can use a 9x13 pan, trifle dish or serve in individual cups. Next spread on the sour cream and guacamole. Then layer on the salsa and cheese. Next add the tomatoes, olives, onions and cilantro. Squeeze lime juice over the top and sprinkle salt and pepper if desired.

Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. It is best to eat the day that it is made. Serve with fresh tortilla chips or fritos.

Enjoy!

I used a trifle dish, but a 9x13 pan works good as well.
