This 7-Layer Bean Dip is one of my favorite appetizers to bring to parties. I love each layer and the part they play. Even when I went through an olive-hating phase, I still liked the olives in this bean dip.
It’s really easy to make. It’s just one layer at a time.
First layer is the base, or rather, the beans. It’s a mixture of regular refried beans and a can of bean dip. I just get what I can find, which is usually the Frito brand. There are different kind of heat, I make sure to get the mild kind because it’s something shared and not everyone likes spicy. All you do is mix the 2 and spread it on the bottom.
The second layer is to make this simple Guacamole Recipe. Carefully dollop it on top of the beans and spread it around.
The third layer is a simple mix also but it adds so much flavor. Mix the sour cream, mayonnaise, and taco seasoning together. When I would make this for a family party, there were certain cousins who would just scrape from this layer up because they loved this layer so much. I would then go and eat the beans, which was my favorite part.
The rest of the layers can be added in any order you would like. I like it to go cheese, olives, tomatoes, and green onions. It just looks prettier that way and I like my food to look pretty and colorful. Carefully grate, chop, dice and slice them and sprinkle them on top.
