Seven Layer Dip

I love going to potluck parties, mostly because the food items that people bring are usually appetizers and I just love all kinds of appetizers. I especially love dips, french onion dip, clam dip, spinach dip, artichoke dip, and seven layer dip, oh I am hungry just thinking about them!  When I was recently invited to a party and was asked to bring something, seven layer dip was the first thought that came to my mind. It is super easy to make, looks great and everyone loves it. It makes the perfect party food, just bring a bag of sturdy chips!

You can probably find a five or seven layer dip in your local grocery store, but you can probably make it yourself and save a few bucks. It also gives you the opportunity to play around with the ingredients. I have seen and tasted a lot of different versions of this dip. My mom use to make this version and trust me, you’ll love it.

Seven Layer Dip Recipe

Serves 12 - 15 Prep Time:


  • 1 14.5 ounce can of spicy refried beans

    Looks good, but I can only contain less than 10 people in our apt.

    Up until now the taco seasoning was a family secret. Not sure about this website Desi!
