7-Layer Dip

Here's a simple and delicious go-to recipe, great for get-togethers and watching winter sports.

7-Layer Dip
Candice Sue Patterson

1 cup Mexican-style cheese
1 cup sour cream
2 tbsp taco seasoning
1- 16oz can of refried beans
2 avocados, pitted, peeled, and mashed
lime juice
Handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
1/2 large onion, diced
6 tomatoes, diced

Make the pico de gallo by mixing tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, and cilantro in a bowl. Squeeze approximately 2 tbsp of lime juice over the mixture. Sprinkle with salt. Stir it all together and set aside.

Add the mashed avocado to a separate bowl.

In another bowl, mix the taco seasoning with the refried beans. Spread the bean mixture in a flat layer on a platter or deep dish. Spread on a layer of guacamole (mashed avocados), then a layer of sour cream. Sprinkle on the cheese. Spoon on the pico de gallo. Sprinkle chopped cilantro over the top.

Feel free to play around with this recipe by adding more ingredients you love, like corn or black olives.
