7-Layer Taco Dip

When we moved from our old neighborhood, my amazing friends had a party for us where they made their favorite recipes and then gave me a recipe book with all those recipes inside. They also signed the inside of the recipe book with loving notes. Do they know me or what!? How sweet – right?

Tonight I opened up my recipe book to make something for Small Group. I would say it was a success. This is what the plate looked like after the group left.

I totally forgot to get a before picture. But, you get the idea. It was good. Like, really good. And, it was quick and easy to make. My favorite type of recipe for Small Group night.

7-Layer Taco Dip

  • 1 can refried beans (I used the regular sized one)
  • 16 oz carton sour cream
  • 1 pkg taco seasoning
  • 1 jar salsa
  • Guacamole (I used a small container from the produce section.)
  • 1 small can sliced olives
  • Shredded lettuce (I used 3/4 a pre-shredded bag.)
  • Shredded Mexican blend cheese (I used about 1.5 cups, but I like LOTS of cheese.)

Mix the sour cream and taco seasoning together in a small bowl. Assemble your ingredients and then layer them in a 9×9 pan or a lovely platter in the following order.

  • Refried beans
  • Guacamole
  • Sour cream mixture
  • Salsa
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Cheese
  • Olives

Refrigerate for at least an hour to let the flavors blend. Serve with tortilla chips or Fritos. I served with the “scoop” form of both.

Ya, it was yummy. I shall be making it again. I really liked serving it on the platter. It made the layers thinner so it was easier for us to all stand around and just scoop off the platter while we chatted. Oh, not that we did that, because that would be rude. We TOTALLY all served ourselves some on individual plates…right, that’s what we did.

Do you have a favorite recipe that an amazing neighbor/friend has shared with you?
