Seven-Layer Dip

   Seven-layer dip is the greatest dip of all time. Well, I think so anyway. I am a Mexican food fanatic, and can never get enough of it. Whenever I'm around this dip, I usually have to ask someone to pry me away from it because I could eat it all in one sitting  : / 


   I like to use the 'freshest' ingredients possible when I make this. I use this homemade salsa for the salsa layer, and I recommend using fresh, grated cheddar cheese. Not the pre-shredded packaged stuff. I've never made my own guacamole (which is on my to-make list) so I use my grocery stores fresh guacamole they make daily. It is really good!

Seven-Layer Dip

1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning
1 1/4 cups fresh guacamole
1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
3/4 cup fresh, chunky salsa
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 small can sliced olives, drained
2 green onions, sliced

Tortilla chips, for dipping

Directions: In a small bowl, mix together the refried beans and taco seasoning until combined. Spread mixture evenly into the bottom of a 9-inch glass deep dish pie plate or a 8x8 glass baking dish.

Spread the guacamole evenly over the top of the beans. Then spread the sour cream evenly over the guacamole.

Use a slotted spoon to drain any excess liquid from the salsa, and then spoon salsa over the top of the sour cream. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the salsa. Sprinkle the olives and green onions over the cheese. Cover with saran wrap and place in fridge for at least 2 hours to chill, before serving.

Serve dip with tortilla chips and enjoy! ♥
