{Not Your Mom’s} 7 Layer Dip


7 layer dip

What it is about dip…..specifically 7 Layer Dip in this case? I love chips and dip, love, love, love them. THIS 7 layer dip is by far my favorite though. Just look at it, all those layers mixed together to create yummy goodness. Perhaps one of the reasons I adore this dip is because you can customize each bite. You just dip your chip in and you can choose what to scoop up! Imagine the possibilities! One bite could be beans and cheese, the next sour cream and tomatoes, then guacamole and black olives…each bite different and delicious. Yum, love the variety in each mouthful!

Why is THIS particular 7 layer dip my favorite you ask? Well… (drumroll please) it has some oh so special ingredients that you don’t find in other 7 layer dips.

The sour cream has mayonnaise and taco seasoning mixed in to make it tastier and give it a little kick, or a BIG kick depending on how much you mix in! The guacamole has salt, tabasco and lemon juice to make it more flavorful and keep it green longer. No one likes brown guacamole folks, it just looks gross! And the beans are not just a normal can of refried beans, oh no! These beans have a can of Frito Lay Bean Dip mixed into them. This makes them creamier with more flavor. All of the above help give the dip a lot of something extra! The added ingredients also stop your dip from being too dry and make it the perfect consistency for chips. Oh man, get in my belly!

I love this dip. (yes, I know already said that:) but it is true, I DO! I can eat half a pan in just a few days. Wanna know a dirty little secret? Who am I kidding, of course you do! When I make this dip I eat it for lunch and dinner for days until it is gone. Amazing, not super healthy but there ARE vegetables in there right?!?! {wink}

This dip is super great for bbq’s, potlucks, parties, or in my case sometimes I just make it for dinner. You know the days when you need one of your favorite foods to sit and stuff your face with in front of your tv when the kiddos are finally in bed!

So how can you make this dip yourself? Super easy folks, just follow the direction in the recipe and make sure you have more than 1 bag of chips on hand, you are gonna need it! Have fun pigging out!
