Family Favorite Seven Layer Bean Dip
Hey guys! Last week I wrote a little bit about our family enchilada recipes. They’re all so yummy. I’m sure Kristyn has told you about how much we love to get together and eat all foods, but Mexican food is our favorite. With those main dishes like Enchiladas and Beef Empanadas, we always have some scrumptious sides to go along with it like today’s recipe for our 7 Layer Bean Dip. It is one of those appetizers that we always seem to have when we are eating Mexican food… especially for Cinco de Mayo.

Layered Bean Dip
Why is it called 7 Layer Bean Dip? Because there are typically 7 layers involved when preparing this Tex-Mex appetizer.
- Refried Beans
- Sour Cream (we mix ours with Taco seasoning for added flavor)
- Salsa or chopped tomatoes
- Grated cheese – Mexican blend or Monterey Cheese are our favorites
- Black Olives
- Your favorite green veggie – lettuce, green onions, jalapenos, or green chiles – all are delicious!!
As with any of our recipes, they can be customized to your liking. We do beans, guac, sour cream mixed with Taco seasoning, chopped tomatoes, Mexican cheese, olives and green onions. It’s ALWAYS a hit!!
It can be served with warm tortilla chips or is great with Frito’s too. The fun thing about this 7 layer bean dip is you can add as many additional layers as you’d like. Avocados, corn, whichever ingredients you like in your bean dip. OR you can try making our Loaded Nachos which is pretty much this bean dip, cooked over cheesy tortilla chips!
