It’s Super Bowl week! That means a week full of great dips and appetizers for your Super Bowl party on Sunday. In case you missed it last week, you’ll want to check out my 103 Super Bowl Recipes – a roundup of recipes already on the site that are perfect for game day menus. This week, I have a few more recipes to add to that roundup that I think you’re going to love. First up is a classic – Seven Layer Dip.

The seven layers are made up the following ingredients:

1. Refried beans warmed up with some Mexican spices
2. Shredded cheddar cheese
3. Jalapeños
4. Avocado
5. Tomatoes
6. Sour cream
7. Olives

It’s basically an all-star lineup of components from every amazing Mexican dip you can think of – bean dip, cheesy stuffed jalapeños, guacamole, salsa, and all topped off with sour cream and olives.

Can you say amazing? The combination of spice from the beans and jalapenos is perfectly balanced with the coolness of the avocado and sour cream. It’s easy to prepare and also easy to double or triple if you’re feeding a large crowd.

Grab a bag of tortilla chips and enjoy!

      Well, I’m new to the dip scene (although I’m sure my husband would disagree as I’m sure he finds me a little dippy). But 7 layers. Sour Cream. Put me in coach, I’m ready to play!!!

    I’ve made a dip for years that combines refried beans and ground beef along with chili powder and cumin. I often use that as the base for this dip. It’s delicious both ways! This will be served for the Super Bowl — maybe along with an avocado shrimp salsa.

    I was just thinking about this dip this morning! Glad to see you used a pie pan for serving, I have seen recipes where they use a deep bowl, and all I can think is: pretty, but I can’t get to everything – fail! I must make this soon!!

    I’ve never actually eaten this dip but it looks delicious and I’ve seen it in the deli section at some grocery stores. You mention heating the beans until they are soft and bubbly and assembling everything while it’s hot. I’m wondering if this can be made in advance? The beans would get cold, but I guess it would be like the store bought version. Can you eat this dip cold??

      Hi Grace, I’ve done this! I definitely like it best warm/fresh, but it’s still good after being chilled. If you do so, I would make sure that you completely cover the avocado layer with sour cream so that it doesn’t brown.

    Love this stuff! I made something similar for a work afternoon tea. There were leftovers (which I was thankful for!) so I ate it for lunch until it was gone. I think it’s healthy, it’s got all the food groups (veg, dairy, protein, etc)! Yum.
