Recipe / Seven Layer Dip

As a human, it is physically impossible for me to resist any kind of chip/dip/salsa situation. I can't do it. I will literally eat chips and salsa all day everyday if I can until I explode. Call it a Mexican thing, but whatever it is, I'm a chips and salsa fanatic. Of course, this means that I take Superbowl food very seriously. When the Super Bowl rolled around this year, I knew I had to whip up my favorite dip ever... the epic... the delicious... the so good it makes you wish you had two stomachs dip... Seven Layer Dip! Heck yes. To me, seven layers sounds ambitious. But once you get this bad boy going, it's really easy and actually takes minimal prep time. And trust me- everyone loves it. Some people are freaks about making sure each layer is stacked nice and neat so you can see it all from the sides of the bowl. That's much too much for me. Uneven edges are totally cool in my book.

- 1 package taco seasoning mix
- 1 can refried beans
- 1 can black beans
- 1 container sour cream
- 1 jar of salsa (I prefer hot- obvi.)
- 1 large tomato, chopped
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 can black olives, drained
- 1 package of Mexican cheese (I use Kraft)
- Guacamole (I used my own recipe, but you can buy pre-made guac at the store if you'd like.)

1. In a medium bowl, blend the taco seasoning mix and refried beans and heat over low heat. Spread the mixture onto the bottom of your serving platter or bowl.
2. Add a layer of salsa.
3. Heat the black beans over medium heat, then add the layer to the bowl, followed by a layer of cheese.
4. Add a layer of sour cream.
5. Add a layer of guacamole.
6. Add all the cheese your heart desires.
7. Top with black olives, chopped onions and tomatoes.
8. Enjoy :)

This was our Super Bowl set up this year. We don't mess around when it comes to food based events. Lots of hot sauce, guacamole and dip galore. Oh and of course, beer. Lots and lots of beer. YUM.


  1. That looks delicious! I love the seven layer dip. It's everything you could ask for in a dip. YUM.

  2. YO have you ever had the tostitos chipotle dip!? surprisingly to DIE for - that's basically all i ate all winter break. can't believe it!!! this looks like a delightfully gnarly superbowl set up...mad jealous.

  3. This looks sooo delicious, it's making me hungry just looking at it! I might leave out the onions though if I make it, not a huge fan :)


  4. My boyfriend's mother makes a dip similar to this and it is ALWAYS a hit at her parties. Never any leftovers!

  5. Ugh I need this! I'll eat nachos, chips & salsa or any other dip every day if it were available haha. Seven layer dips go by so fast!

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  6. I need this asap. Okay, minus the sour cream and olives but everything else is perfection
