7 Layer Dip

It's football season!  You have to know how to make a good 7 Layer Dip during football season.  This is how I make it, no tomatoes, no lettuce, that's for tacos, not DIP.  
  • 1 can of refried beans (black or pinto)
  • 1 pack of Taco Seasoning
  • 1 (8oz.)  Guacamole (1 C.)
  • 1 (8oz.) sour cream (1 C.)
  • 1 (8oz.) salsa (1 C.)
  • 1 bag of Mexican finely shredded cheese (2 C.)
  • ½ jar of Jalapeño slices
  • 1 (2oz.) sliced black olives
  1. Combine the beans and taco seasoning in a bowl and mix well
  2. In a 13x9x 2 dish, spread the bean mixture to cover the bottom of the dish
  3. Layer each of the other ingredients, in order, to create the 7 layers
  4. Refrigerate for several hours before serving
  5. Serve with tortilla chips
Tips and Tricks:
  • Do not try to serve this dip with Tostitos Scoops.  You need a chip that has a flat edge to scrap the dip up and out of the dish.
  • I don’t recommend using light sour cream for this recipe.  To create the 7 layers you need the consistency of the full leaded sour cream.
  • I like to make my own guacamole, but for this recipe save yourself the time, it’s not necessary.
