Easy 7 Layer Dip

Easy 7 Layer Dip


I always bring this simple 7-layer bean dip as an appetiser to get-togethers, parties, and game days. It’s quite simple to make, packs up nicely, and is a hit with everyone!

Ingredients :


  1. 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
  2. 1 (10 ounce) can rotel tomatoes and green chilies drained
  3. 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  4. 3 medium avocados peeled and seeded
  5. 1 lime juiced
  6. 2 cloves garlic minced
  7. ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  8. ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  9. ¼ teaspoon salt
  10. ¼ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  11. 1 ½ cups sour cream
  12. 2 cups finely shredded cheddar and monterey jack cheese blend
  13. ½ cup sliced black olives
  14. 1 cup diced cherry or roma tomatoes
  15. ⅓ cup sliced green onions

Instructions :

  • Combine the refried beans, rotel tomatoes and taco seasoning. Spread it in a 7 x 11 inch casserole dish.
    Mash the avocado. Mix in the lime juice, garlic, cilantro, onion powder, salt and cayenne. Spread it over the bean layer.
  • Carefully spread the sour cream over the avocado layer.
    Top with the finely shredded cheese, black olives, tomatoes and green onions. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
    Have a good meal.




  • Create your own tortilla chips. I highly suggest creating your own handmade tortilla chips if you have the time. They are slightly thicker than the brand you can buy at your local shop, but they still taste fantastic and are ideal for piling on all seven levels of favourite Mexican dip. Furthermore, making my recipe for tortilla chips will only require three ingredients and thirty minutes in the kitchen—completely worth it!
  • Incorporate some spiced ground beef. For the base layer of the dip, some people like to add seasoned ground beef along with the beans. This step can be omitted, but it certainly provides more flavour and can be a simpler, more understated way to increase the recipe’s heat level.
  • Put on even more garnishes! If you think that seven layers isn’t enough, feel free to add as many toppings as you like. Many different flavour combinations are delicious when combined. I’ve occasionally topped my seven-plus layer dip with pickled red onions, fresh or pickled jalapeños, queso, and salsa verde!



I typically just cover the plate with plastic wrap and store the leftovers in the refrigerator since I like to retain the layers of this simple 7-layer dip. The dip can also be kept in an airtight container. Your Mexican dip should keep for up to five days in either case! Remember that your guacamole will start to turn brown, but it will have its green colour longer if the other ingredients, like sour cream, completely cover it.
