I have made a similar dip using "brick" cream cheese in place of the sour cream. It requires a few minutes more of preparation, but everytime I serve it, it receives rave reviews. Soften an 8 oz. brick of cream cheese in the bottom of a glass pie plate for 30 seconds in the microwave. Spread in the bottom of the plate and then layer the refried beans, salsa and shredded Mexican style cheese on top of the cream cheese. Return to the microwave and heat between 1-2 minutes or until the cheese on top is melted. Serve with tortilla chips. The shredded Mexican style cheese is available in the dairy section of the supermarket and usually consists of 2-3 different cheeses shredded together. It's truly addictive! Read More

A condensed 7 layer dip. In truth mine doesn't end up being much more than this by the time I take out everything that someone objects to. Read More

This dip is great & always goes really quick. I love it b/c it's so easy. I always mix a little taco seasoning into the sour cream. Read More

It was my turn to bring refreshments to our weekly meeting. I wanted something quick easy inexpensive and tasty. Boy was this a hit!! The dish was practicly empty in no time! I used spicy refried beans and 16 oz salsa strained so as not to be too watery. I garnished the top with some chopped green onions and sliced black olives and served it with tortilla chips. I received many compliments! Thanks! Will make again for sure. Read More

Great with homemade salsa and 1/2 the amount of sour cream and cheese also (for us waistline watchers). Read More

I made this dip for a tailgate party. This was a hit and easy to make. I just whipped it up before we headed out. I sliced up some green onions and put them on top of cheese. I also added a packet of taco seasoning to the sour cream but I probably won't do that everytime I make dip. Just for something different...Thanks! Read More

I'd suggest adding some seasoning (like cumin chili powder &/or cayenne) to spice it up a bit or maybe adding a layer consisting of a can of drained green chiles. Read More
