7 Layer Dip
7 Layer Bean Dip
2 Small or 1 Large can(s) of refried beans
1 16 oz package of sour cream
1 package of taco seasoning
Guacamole (I make my own with 3 avocados mashes with a fork and about 1 TBSP olive oil mixed with about 1/4 tsp salt and some pepper to taste)
1 16 oz jar of salsa
2 cups of shredded cheese
1-2 large tomatoes chopped into small pieces
1 16 oz can of chopped olives
Spread refried beans in the bottom of 9x13 pan
Add the taco seasoning the package of sour cream, mix well, then spread sour cream mixture over the refried beans.
Make guacamole and spread on top of the sour cream mixture
Pour the salsa over the guacamole and spread.
Sprinkle shredded cheese on top.
Disperse tomatoes and olives over the top of the mixture.
Serve with tortilla chips
Alternatives: Some people add shredded lettuce for a crunch, but it makes it spoil faster, some add diced jalapenos or green chilies to the layer of salsa for spice, and some people mix the taco seasoning with the beans and add cream cheese to the sour cream to make a richer taste- it's just up to you if you want spicy, creamy, or crunchy!
