Every layer of the 7 Layer Taco Dip is delicious on its own but when you layer them together and scoop with a taco chip it is a party in your mouth. The minute you set your eyes on this appetizer you will be transported to a friend’s party in the 80s when this dip was at every party.

When Jim and I were first married every dinner party, Christmas Party or New Years’ Eve Party had one person if not two bring this creamy dream dip. The type of chip or cracker may have changed the dip was always the same. If no one brought the 7 layer taco dip it was a topic of conversation.

How to Maka the Perfect 7 Layer Taco Dip

  1. First gather all of the ingredients chop the tomatoes, olives, and green onions. Grate your cheese, you can use packaged grated cheese but when I am having a dip for guests I do not like the corn starch specks on my cheese. I think it is best to grate your own. (I have found the perfect kitchen gadget to grate cheese the Kitchen HQ Speed Grater and Slice. You will love this it works so well and is simple to use)
  2. Next, take the vegetarian refried beans out of the can and mix and smash with a fork.
  3. Now start layering.
  4. Use a round serving dish or a casserole dish with the off set spatula start layering.
  5. layer #1 the refried beans into a smooth layer.
  6. Layer #2 is the salsa drained and in a smooth layer.
  7. Layer #3 mix the sour cream with a package of taco seasoning and layer ontop of the salsa.
  8. Layer #4 is the guacamole.
  9. Layer #5 the shredded cheddar cheese.
  10. Layer #6 drained diced Roma tomatoes.
  11. Layer #7 sliced black olives & sliced green onions.
  12. Keep chilled until ready to serve.

You can add any amount of each layer that you like. You can also add other veggies and take off veggies that you do not like. Make the dip with your favorite ingredients and make it your own.
