7 delicious layers of salsa, guacamole, sour cream, beans, cheese, tomatoes and olives. The perfect appetizer for game day or a friends get-together. People will gather around this 7 layer dip until it’s gone!
1 1/2cupschunky medium salsa (can sub for more diced tomatoes)
1cupshredded cheddar cheese
3roma tomatoes(diced and drained of juices)
4ouncessliced olives or jalapenos(1 can, drained)
1 bunch green onions(sliced thin, optional)
s&p to taste
For serving: Tortilla chips or Fritos
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.
If the salsa has liquid, pour it through a mesh strainer. This will remove any extra liquid and prevent your dip from becoming runny. Alternatively you can skip the salsa and add extra tomatoes. Add on top of guacamole.
Next add the cheese, tomatoes, olives, onions and cilantro. Squeeze a little lime juice over the top if desired. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top.
Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. The dip is best to eat the day that it is made. Serve with fresh tortilla chips or Fritos. Enjoy!
Alternatively you can mix the cream cheese and taco seasoning in with the sour cream.
You could also add in a Tablespoon of ranch seasoning mix to the sour cream if you prefer.
Do not use a thin salsa, it will make the whole dip runny.
If you are wanting to make ahead of time, I would do the bean and sour cream layer and refrigerate. Then add the guacamole, salsa and toppings right before the event, so it stays fresh.
