Wow! Everyone loved this one and has requested this to be a "keeper." I used a can of crushed tomatoes in place of the chopped fresh and it was still good. If you have no finely shredded cheese other shreds will do but the texture may not be to your liking: it is bumpy. This is a great dip. Read More

This is the best 7 layer dip recipe I've tried yet. And if you use light sour cream and light cream cheese it's still just as yummy. Read More

Made this for a party and it was devoured by a group of men. I used mild salsa but will use either medium or hot next time as the dip was not spicy enough. Read More

Awesome dip. I drained some of the juice from the salsa and drained and seeded the tomato which made it less soupy. It still was great the next day as well. Read More

This is a great recipe because it doesn't include the mushy beans. However I did change it a bit based on the reviews. I omitted the soy sauce lemon juice hot sauce olives (not generally a crowd favorite) and tomatoes (seemed to be the cause of watery mess and there is enough tomato product in the salsa). I creamed together the sour cream and cream cheese with a half a package of hot taco seasoning. Then I layered as instructed with medium chunky salsa green onions roman lettuce and cheddar cheese. I felt the hot taco seasoning and medium salsa made this dish not bland as other commented. You can always temper the seasonings to your taste with the salsa hot sauce and taco seasoning. I also had no issues with juices even after a night in the fridge. Read More

I omitted the soy sauce used reduced fat cream cheese and reduced fat sour cream used lime juice instead of lemon juice. I also stirred homemade taco seasoning into the cream cheese/sour cream. Next time I'll cut back the lettuce. Read More

This is a fantastic party pleaser! I used diced red peppers instead of tomatoes to top the dish and I've upped the amount of hot sauce because we like our food spicy! There is never anything left when we take it to office parties and the really great thing is you don't even need a spoon. Just grab a couple of bags of scoop style chips and you are good to go. Thank you Kathy G for sharing this terrific dish! Read More

I made this for a work party and it was a hit. I made the cream cheese mixture the night before and added the other "stuff" an hour before the work party. I think I would probably drain the salsa a little though it made it a little watery but it was still a hit. I was the only one worried about it but it went. I even added some Mexican cheese red - yellow peppers avacado - it looked great and tasted great. Awesome recipe. Read More
