Seven Layer Dip

By far, one of my most favorite kinds of food is Mexican food. Tacos, burritos, enchiladas ... I'm fairly obsessed with it all! AND one of my favorite items to make when I'm in the mood for Mexican food, but not hungry enough for tacos/burritos, is Mexican 7 layer dip, including guacamole and all! So primarily, the recipe for how to make this is as follows:

What you will need to assemble the dip:

Pan for assembly
1 can refried beans
Sour cream
Other toppings as desired

What you will need for the guacamole:

1 Mashed Avocado
1 Chopped Tomato
1/4 Chopped Onion
Chopped Cilantro
Lime Juice


Primarily, make the guacamole. In a bowl, combine avocado, tomato, onion, and cilantro. Mix together and add lime juice and salt to taste. Set aside.

Then, grab your pan and start layering the dip! For the first layer, heat up the refried beans and spread them on the bottom of the pan.

Next take the guacamole you prepared, and make it the second layer!

On top of that, add the salsa for your third layer.

For the next layer, add sour cream and spread. Then, on top add toppings of choice! My choices were: tomatoes, jalepenos, and olives!

And for your final layer, add the cheese.

Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!

This is definitely one of my most favorite things to make because it's so quick and easy. I love love making guacamole and eating it with chips too but with this, it's even better! Quite frequently, I take this with me when I go to potluck parties because it seems to be a big hit! ... Do you have your own version of a 7 layer dip? Let me know! :)


  1. Oh my goodness, Rashmi, that's so much hahaha Love it. Do you have any good Mexican restaurants you can recommend? I only know of Carolina's Downtown.

    1. Hi Annie! You'd be surprised how fast this dip can be made. The most time-consuming this is probably making the avocado, but even then, it's not too bad!

      My favorite Mexican Restaurants include: Abuelo's Mexican Embassy, Si Senor, and Serrano's! ... Abuelo's has one location in Peoria and one in Chandler (right by the mall), Si Senor is also located in Chandler (Cross streets are Alma School and in between Ray Rd. and Chandler Blvd), and Serrano's has quite a few locations, so I'll provide a link: -- I've only eaten at the one in Chandler. Additionally, it's kind of far for me, so I don't go there very often (only been there twice) but Rancho De Tia Rosa's is also good! Hope that helps! :)
