7 Layered Dip

I can't believe we haven't put this recipe on here before!!  It is an old, tried and true recipe that we have made for years at every family party ever (pretty much) .  You can buy it at any store and most people know basically how to make it.  But the other day for super bowl as I was rounding up ingredients I realized that the last few times I've made or bought 7 layered dip, it just wasn't as good as I remembered growing up.  So I searched for my mom's old recipe and realized what sets ours apart from the others....  Green Chili in the beans..  I'm not a huge fan of green chili's but mixed with the beans it gives it that added kick and flavor with out you knowing exactly what it is.  Try it... You'll like it;)

7 Layered Dip

1 can refried beans
1 small can diced green chili
1lb guacamole
1lb sour cream
1 pkg dry taco seasoning
2 c. grated cheese
1 bunch green onions (sliced)
2 med tomatoes (diced)
1 can black olives (sliced)

Mix the refried beans and green chili's together (you can use the whole can of chili's or only part of it, just depends on your taste).  For a thinner dip spread in a 9x13 pan or for a deeper dip spread in a 9x9 (pictured above).  Spread the guacamole on top of the bean mixture.  Mix together the taco seasoning and sour cream and spread on top of the guac.  Sprinkle on the cheese, onions, tomato, and olives and/or any other toppings you would like.  Serve with tortilla chips.   *****  Also if you have lots left over (which is unlikely) you can always reuse the dip and make burritos.  Put it in tortillas, warm it up and serve it with lettus, slasa and any other burrito type toppings you would like*****

Pin It!
