Here's the thing - 7 Layer Dip is incredible. It's all my favorite things in 1 vessel and it's consumed with tortilla chips, what's not to love. BUT... because it's so simple, it has to be done right. No shortcuts when it comes to store bought guacamole. No skimping on the cheese. In my case, hold the black olives and add more herbs. And make sure you're using a great salsa. All of that... and then you're in business! Let's break it down shall we:

Here's how to make the BEST 7 Layer Dip

  1. Bottom layer: re-fried beans. If you're near a Trader Joe's and can grab the refried beans that have a little bit of salsa mixed in, that's a pro-move!
  2. Next layer: Sour Cream. Full fat here guys. Always. Give it a healthy layer so every bite is creamy and delish.
  3. Coming up next: Guacamole. Homemade is def preferred, otherwise get it freshly made from your local market.
  4. Next: copious amounts of Shredded Cheddar Cheese.
  5. On top of that... pico de gallo or your favorite salsa!
  6. Scallions come next and are an integral part of the perfect bite!
  7. Last but not least... Cilantro. Some people do olives and while I LOVE an olive, it doesn't belong in this dip if you ask me!

Layer those delicious ingredients in a vessel or plate or whatever else you'd like and serve them up with a bag or two of tortilla chips and you're in business! And if you're going for the gold, here's a tutorial on how to make your own tortilla chips that are fresh AF!

  1. I love many of your recipes, I was going to print this , and the link to print ,I couldn't find it.Help.A fan of yours.

  2. I love 7-layer bean dip and it's always a huge success wherever I take it. I use a can of the spicy refried beans, but love the idea of adding salsa to it. Here's something that I do that always makes people say "this is delicious, what makes it different?"..... I add a packet of taco seasoning mix to my sour cream. It gives it a really zesty flavor and makes it stand out from other dips and a great disguise for those of you that don't like it.

    Happy Super Bowl Sunday and happy munching!!! 🙂

  3. In my grandma's recipe we mix a cup of sour cream with 2 tablespoons of mayo and a packet of taco seasoning, so good!!

  4. I like everything about this dip. I'm not going to be partaking in any Superbowl festivities, but I think I might make a batch of this...for me, myself, and I!

  5. So funny...
    Mayo used to freak me out. I could not handle that creamy rich consistency. i would literally gag. Then for some reason in college I just flipped the switch and decided to like it. Go figure.
    The bacon on top looks good!

  6. Oh my goodness this sounds good. I'm salivating just thinking about it. It might be an obsession until I try in on Sunday during the game!

  7. Ahh, that used to be me too! I couldn't stand 7 layer dip - now I love it 😀 Although I don't like the olives either so this is perfect for me 😀
