This Seven Layer Dip will Make Your Parties Easier
We love entertaining but it can be very time-consuming and super expensive if you don’t have a few easy and simple appetizers on the menu. Which is why this seven layer dip is always on the top of my mind whenever I’m thinking of must-serves that have to be on my list.
This Mexican Dip is not one of those classic New Year’s Eve appetizers that might be like a take one and walk away kind of an appetizer, but this is a more scoop and go, or it could even be scooped onto your plate and then devoured away from the appetizer station. I love that! It feeds the hungriest people at the party and it’s also great for someone who just wants to graze. And, by the way, I don’t only limit this to a New Years Eve appetizer. This 7 Layer Bean Dip is perfect for Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day and all of the holidays. Heck, it is even called “dinner” at the Sorensen household sometimes. 🙂
As I was prepping for this years holiday festivities I plan on heading over to my local Save-A-Lot (find your nearest store here) to gather the ingredients because they have such reasonable prices and really good produce as well, in some cases they even offer up to 40% lower prices than conventional grocery stores. And, at times I find that they sell at prices well below other retailers, making this recipe cost even less. Love that, too! Be sure to join their Smart Shopper club here to get additional savings.

Now, onto this easy, frugal refried bean dip. It’s seriously so easy, I feel bad even breaking it down, but here you go!
First you’re going to want to mix your sour cream and taco seasoning packet. This stuff is good enough to eat as a dip by iteslf, seriously. But you’re going to want to resist the urge. It’s even better when it’s all together in the layered dip.
Add your diced tomatoes to the bottom of a 9×13 glass dish and top with the sour cream mixture.
Next, spread your black olives. These can be used on only half or you can leave them out altogether. I know black olives are either a love or a hate thing. 🙂
Next spread the refried bean and salsa mixture. I told you this was crazy easy, right? Spread your mashed avocados onto the beans.
Sprinkle cheese on top of the dip and next toss a few green onions on top. Serve with tortilla chips. This dip is even better if you can let it sit for a little bit and let the flavors come together. Yum!
