7 Layer Dip

Everyone loves a great dip!  Don’t let the “7 layer” portion of the title scare you off, this one is super easy to make and has a bunch of flavors that work great together!  Getting started…the first thing you will need to do is collect all of the ingredients:

  1. 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef
  2. 1 taco seasoning packet
  3. 4 cups of shredded Cheddar-Jack cheese
  4. 1 can refried beans
  5. 1 container of sour cream (8 oz)
  6. 1 cup each of salsa and guacamole
  7. 1/2 cup each of chopped green onions and chopped fresh tomatoes
  8. black olives (optional)

Spray cooking spray to coat a frying pan and cook the beef.  Once the beef is thoroughly cooked, mix in the taco seasoning packet according to the directions on the packet.  Pull from heat and set the meat aside to cool.

Next you will need a 9×13 dish that is about 2 inches deep.  Time to start the layering!  First layer is the refried beans.  Open the can and spread it out across the bottom of the dish.  Next, sprinkle 2 of the 4 cups of cheese across the bean layer.  Now it is time to add the beef layer on top of the cheese.

After you have added all of the beef to the third layer, it is time to coat it all in the sour cream layer.  After the sour cream, spread out the guacamole.

Once the guacamole has been spread, pour a layer of salsa and then cover that with another layer of cheese (the remaining 2 cups).  For the topping, cut up fresh tomato, green onion and black olives (I omitted these from mine).

And that is it!  No baking involved…eat cold or at room temperature with some tortilla chips.  This is always a great party recipe that will leave them scraping at the edges of the dish for the last bite!
