Not sure if I just did something wrong because everyone else seems to like it....but you are better off not spending a half hour chopping veggies and just picking up a (better-tasting) seven-layer dip from the store! The secret ingredient cocktail sauce isn't so secret. That's what it tastes like! My friend said she would not think of it as taco dip. Read More

No olives. Use whipped cream cheese instead of whipping regular cream cheese with milk. Read More

Awesome dip! My only criticism is that after it sets a while in the fridge it's starts to get watery from the sauce but that was easily taken care of w/ a paper towel. I brought this to room temp before serving so that we could easily scoop this up w/ crackers and that worked out perfectly! We thought the flavors of this went great together! Definitely will make this one again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

The cocktail sauce is just odd for Mexican and the cream cheese is not a pleasant base. I tried eating it after making it but me and my family really thought it was a no go. Tasted off. Read More

I took a chance on the recipe for a family pool party. Everyone recognizes the 7 layer dip but people were pleasantly surprised at this variation. The cocktail sauce almost tastes fruity in this mix of ingredients and it was a great snack for a group on a hot day! You won't go wrong with this and you can count on people asking you for the recipe. Read More
