 So growing up I always made this 7 layer dip for football games. I remember one time making it for a game and we did not eat that much of it, so nearly the entire pan was put in the fridge. I woke up the next morning craving the 7 layer dip like crazy bad!  Went to the fridge and it was gone?! Apparently my brother, who had weird sleeping habits, ate the entire pan! In the middle of the night! I think I was really mad, but now it’s just funny.

Over the years I have changed it a bit, but it still remains my favorite dip ever, and any football game (especially!) or get together would not be complete without it.

 {Follow the layers in the recipe. I was not paying attention and added sour cream as the 2nd layer instead of avo}

A layer of refried beans + cream cheese for an ultra creamy bean layer!

Fresh smashed avocados

Sour cream

Chopped roma tomatoes

Chopped olives (If you can’t find the ‘chopped olives’ just buy the sliced and chop them up small)

Shredded ‘mexican style’ cheese

So, technically it’s 6 but I added the cream cheese in the bean layer to make 7.

 Surprisingly, this stays well in the fridge for leftovers the next day (if you have any). Be sure to completely cover the avocado layer with the sour cream to “hide it” so it does not turn brown as it sits in the fridge.

I have found that it is best to make this 1-2 hours ahead of time and then keep it in the fridge until you need it. The flavors meld together and the entire dip gets nice and cold.

Enjoy friends! 🙂

Save Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 can (16 oz) refried beans
  • 4 oz (1/2 of a block) cream cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 avocados
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 a lime, squeezed
  • 1 bag (8 oz) shredded mexican style cheese
  • 4 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced small
  • 1 can (4 oz) chopped olives

Instructions

  1. Get an 8x8 dish out and set aside.
  2. In microwaveable bowl, combine refried beans and cream cheese. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir together until combined and creamy. You may need to microwave for longer, just be sure that it is not piping hot. Spread into the bottom of the dish evenly.
  3. In a small bowl, add the avocados, kosher salt, and lime juice. Mash together with a fork until combined. Can leave some chunks, depending on preference. Spread on top of the bean layer.
  4. Spread the sour cream on top of the avocados. Making sure to cover the avocados to protect them from turning brown.
  5. Sprinkle cheese on top of the sour cream. Use the entire bag or use less. I normally end up using about 1 1/2 cups of cheese.
  6. Sprinkle tomatoes on top of cheese.
  7. Sprinkle olives on top of tomatoes.
  8. Store in fridge for 1-2 hours before serving.
  9. Serve with tortilla chips.
