This 7 layer bean dip is the perfect dip for your next football party or any party. The mix of multiple
flavors all layered in one combined perfectly for a taste bud treat.
Football season is in full swing. Not to mention the holiday season is approaching fast which means party season. What’s a staple at every party? Dips. Oh the variety of dips out there to enjoy are endless.
I personally make at least three different kinds of dips when hosting a party. I just love a good dip and my guests seem to enjoy them just as much.
This 7 layer bean dip has always been a crowd pleaser. I always get asked to please make the bean dip. It’s so simple to make too, which is a bonus.
One question I used to ask myself is what layers go on top of the others. There is no rhyme or reason to the layering. Everyone does it differently. Guess what it is going to taste the same regardless if your salsa is on top of your beans or the guacamole is. You do want to keep the beans as the bottom layer since it is the heaviest.
I personally use a food processor to mix my refried beans and seasoning together. It saves so much time and keeps your arm from hurting since you’re not having to mix it by hand. It also blends up the refried beans more for a smoother texture.
Any taco seasoning will work, but I prefer the Taco Bell taco seasoning. Yes, I’m a lover of all things Taco Bell. It is probably one of my favorite fast food places, especially when it comes to Mexican fast food.
For the guacamole layer I use 2 large avocados and mashed them up good and then add this Mexican salsa to it with some fresh lime juice. Substituting the Mexican salsa I used with your favorite salsa works great too. If you want to make this recipe go even faster buying premade guacamole works just as well.
After you get your veggies chopped up and cheese shredded (or just use already shredded cheese) it’s time to layer. I use a 9×13 glass casserole dish and start with my bean layer. This will be your thickest layer to deal with. Just get it evenly spread out in your dish.
Next I do the guacamole layer. Now the tricky layer, sour cream. Why this is a little tricky is because when spreading out the sour cream on top of the guacamole it might mix a little. A trick is before starting this recipe let your sour cream sit out for a bit. This will make it not as stiff. Then a layer of your favorite salsa, cheese, lettuce, and the tomatoes and black olives on top.
For best results cover and let it sit in the refrigerator for a bit before serving. So when you’re planning on attending or hosting your next party give this recipe a try. And just watch how quickly it disappears.
