Great dip! Fun and easy, but not cheap. Have always relied on this recipe as a crowd pleaser. For a low-fat version that has just as much flavor, use fat free refried beans, reduced fat sour cream and reduced fat (or 2%) sharp cheddar cheese... don't much care for the flavor of the Mexican cheese blend... it might depend on the brand of cheese. Hints for making guacamole: Make sure avacados are dark green and slightly mushy. Instead of peeling the avacados, it's easier to just cut them in half, pop out the pit, and scoop the flesh out with a spoon. Go ahead and squeeze the juice of one whole lime onto the avacado... no need to measure it. In addition to adding taco seasoning to the sour cream, I also mix some with the refried beans. I prefer to spread the guacamole first, then the sour cream, since the guac is heavier. Lastly, throw on some jalapenos with the other toppings for an extra little kick.
i have made this dip so many times for work, every time we have a "party" its requirement! sometimes if the tomatoes don't look good in the store, i will substitute those for a layer of salsa, and it tastes excellent too. i also like mine spicy so i put in extra taco seasoning plus ancho chili powder. i've even used light sour cream and light cheese and no one knew the wiser! lastly, i like to buy the chopped olives in the can, they are so easy to use and bite sized... comes out great every time!!
I have never made a seven layer dip before, so i was a little nervous (it was for a family get together), but everyone loved it. It was so good. My husband isn't too big on dip, but he said he really liked it. I wouldn't change anything with this recipe! Thanks for it, it was a hit!
This is always such a hit! And it is easy to adjust it to personal tastes (guacamole-hater here!). I prefer this recipe to the one I saw that blended cream cheese with the sour cream I think that's just overdoing it.
very very good - I ate 1/2 myself and now I feel a little ill but that's the quantity, not the dip...I added a layer of pickled green chillies and also a layer of salsa, left out the green onions and olives as I didn't have any but it was still great. Added chopped red onions to the guacamole.
This did not go over well at my 'Mexican Theme' party - the only thing I can attribute it to is that I used 'Hot' taco seasoning instead of normal and it was a bit spicy. This got great reviews online but only about 1/3 of the dip was eaten...it seems like something was missing to give it a special oomph! like cream cheese or shredded lettuce to add more texture.
