7 Layer Dip

This is a 7 layer dip, but I don’t add the green onions. So I call it a 6 layer dip instead. I try to have a dip for my family to eat every other week. It is nice to have in the fridge for a snack when the kids get hungry. And very few dishes get dirty for this snack.

My mom only made this dip for wedding and baby showers while I was growing up. Now I try to make this every few months at our house for my family. The dip honestly is best when the tomatoes are fresh out of the garden. 

Do you like corn or flour tortilla chips better? My husband doesn’t like corn. I actually like both and buy both when I buy tortilla chips. 

7 Layer Dip


1st Layer Ingredients

1 can refried beans

1 can small can of frito-lay bean dip 

2nd Layer Ingredients

3 or 4 small avocados (mashed)

3 ounces cream cheese, softened

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion flakes 

3rd Layer Ingredients

1 cup of mayo

1 cup sour cream

1 envelope taco seasoning

And the Remaining Ingredients

1-2 cups cheddar cheese

1 cup tomatoes, diced

1/2 olives, chopped

1/4 cup green onions, chopped 


Combine refried beans and bean dip in a bowl, mix until combined. Then spread into the bottom of an 8 X 8 pan.

Next, in a medium bowl combine avocados, cream cheese, garlic, and onion until well combined and spread over the beans.

The top layer you will combine the mayo, sour cream, and the taco seasoning. (I use about 1/4-1/2 of the package, my kids don’t like spicy things. Use more for a little more spicy.) Then spread over the avocado layer. 

Let this sit over night in the fridge, covered with plastic wrap.

When you are ready to serve top with cheese, olives, tomatoes, and green onions.
