recently we had a work potluck, which usually makes me want to try a new recipe like that I time I made these amazing cookies and cream cookies and these oatmeal raisin whoopie pies. instead of bringing dessert, I was in such a mood for 7 layer dip. I have zero clue where this craving came from, especially since I hadn’t eaten it recently and didn’t even have a recipe saved for it. I did a lot of digging on the interwebs and came up with the most delicious 7 layer dip. I hold myself to a pretty high standard for work potlucks and am always striving to make something that will be completely eaten before the end of the day! this 7 layer dip hit the spot and was devoured by the team. I’ve even made it again for a family get-together. the best part is how absolutely easy it is to throw together!
- 1 (9 0z.) can of bean dip (I got frito’s brand on the chip aisle)
- 1 (6 or 8 oz.) pre-made container of guacamole
- 12 oz. light sour cream
- 1 envelope of taco seasoning mix
- 8 oz. of shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
- 1 tomato, diced (I used canned, just pull out the big chunks and dry them)
- in a clear pie pan, spread the bean dip first using a spatula. wipe off excess bean dip from spatula when finished.
- top the bean dip with guacamole. allow the layers to thicken in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
- meanwhile, combine the sour cream and taco seasoning mix in a separate bowl (or just mix into the sour cream container).
- when the bean/guac mixture is sufficiently chilled, top it with the taco seasoned sour cream. spread well using the spatula.
- top the sour cream with the grated cheese and garnish with diced tomato and jalapeno slices.
