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!

Ingredients

  • 1 (31 ounces) 31 ounce can refried beans
  • 1 (8 ounces) 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)
  • bunch green onions sliced thin, optional
  • 1/2 lime optional
  • s&p to taste
  • Tortilla chips or fritos for servings

Instructions

  1. 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 9×13 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

I used a trifle dish, but a 9×13 pan works good as well.

  1. I’m going to have to make this again but using your recipe. Thanks!
    I always used to make it in a quiche dish to keep it from getting sooo messy after a few dipper have been at it. lol!

  2. It says stir in taco seasoning, but you never mention what kind or how much.

  3. Wow that sounds AMAZING – can’t wait to try it!

  4. I love this recipe, have used it twice so far.  Thankfully both times I read it through properly before going shopping though because You’ve missed 1 item off your ingredients – taco seasoning. Both times I almost forgot to buy it, please could you update the recipe? I’ve pinned it and I keep forgetting its wrong. Thanks!

  5. Ive made this for over 20 years.i love it.
    Ive always used a 9×11 Pyrex pan.
    You like the trifle bowl.
    For looks yes.but that is so deep,how do they get all ingredients on the chip?

  6. Also.if some of you dont like a certain ingredient,leave it out or add what you like.its not set in stone.
    Thats why baking & cooking is so wonderful..

  7. I was wondering if this recipe can be warmed in the oven? Instead of cold or room temperature?

  8. How to make refried beans? 

  9. I was wondering if there is any way to make this without the refried beans?

  10. Can’t wait to try it. I know I will love it.

  11. Do you recommend any particular brand of salsa. Looks amazing!

  12. Looks so delicious! Does the guacamole turn brown? How do you prevent it from doing so

  13. hi! where did you get the cute trifle dish?

    • Hi Cheryl! I have had it for years, but if I remember right I got it from Target! You can also find them at Bed Bath and Beyond, Walmart, or Crate and Barrel. :)

  14. Do you need to cook the refried beans first? Sorry if that’s a stupid question

  15. I actually stir a pack of El Paso taco seasoning in the sour cream instead of the beans!  It adds zip to the bland sour cream!

  16. I put it on a pizza platter.
