Seven Layer Dip
This Seven Layer Dip recipe is EASY and perfect for your Super Bowl party! Layers of refried beans, cheddar cheese, avocado, jalapeños, tomatoes, sour cream and olives!
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
6. Sour cream
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!
