Seven layer dip

Eating the seven layer dip has become a tradition  in our house every super bowl . And truly,the energy surrounding the big game demands a tantalizing tackle for the tongue, every touchdown!  You may or may not be lucky to find  your favorite team huddled up on your big screen this super bowl, but you will definitely find your friends and family huddled around this platter of awesomeness always! 


  • A can of store bought refried beans 
  • 1/2 tsp of taco seasoning or ground cumin powder
  • 1/2 cup of homemade Guacamole
  • 1/2 cup of  homemade  Salsa
  • 3 chopped scallions or slim bouquet of chives ( substitute for shredded lettuce if u like)
  • 1/2 cup of pico de gallo or plain chopped tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup sliced olives 
  • 1/4 cup of pickled jalapeños ( more if u like spicy)
  • 1 Container (8 oz) sour cream, whipped
  • Mexican cheese blend, grated

Remove refried beans from the can and microwave for 40 seconds. Add taco seasoning or cumin powder and mix well.

Take a deep bowl or platter, and layer to your fancy starting with refried beans at the bottom. You can add a layer of Guacamole next , followed by pico de gallo/chopped tomatoes. Next add a layer of whipped sour cream, followed by a layer of grated cheese and next some tomato Salsa . Finish with a mix of olives, jalapenos, chives and tomatoes on top. Sprinkle some grated cheese again. Do not broil as i see many doing the same, maintain the fresh raw taste.

Serve chilled with your choice of crisp tortilla chips ( try El melagro's if u like)

Super delecious, hearty and satisfying! Will get the most sophisticated snob to finger lick ;)
