"This is an updated version of the classic party dip. The flavors are a bit more interesting, but this is still super-easy to prepare. Bring lots of chips!" — Manda

red onion, minced
fresh lime juice

I used reduced fat cream cheese/sour cream, homemade taco seasoning, homemade refried beans and homemade pickled jalapenos. I had some leftover Pace Garlic and Lime Chile Verde which I used in this recipe instead of your usual red salsa. We all loved this dip--it really was one of the best I've made yet. I highly suggest that you make this as early as you can, I made mine pretty early and the morning and lemme tell you, it was pretty freaking amazing.
I made this exactly as outlined for the Superbowl and it was phenomenal! Much better texture than most 7 layer dips and the layer of cream cheese, sour cream and taco seasoning gave it such great flavor.
I was curious about the cream cheese I'd never heard of anything like that for chips. It was great though I made it exactly how the recipe said. I took it to a party and everyone thought it was amazing!
We use this as a main dish! Omit the cream cheese and sour cream, and add the seasoning to the refried beans. We prepare a bed of lettuce on individual plates and top it with the remaining mixture. So, if we don't eat it all, the lettuce doesn't wilt. Had to search for the pickled jalapeno pepper slices, but well worth it. So unique and fresh tasting. Love it!
5 stars for easy for sure. 7 layer dip is one of those dips that is so easy to adapt to what you have on hand. Black olives are a great addition. Afraid of jalapenos? use Ortega green chilies.
Very good! I skipped the beans since I'm not a fan, other then that I followed the recipe exactly. I served it at a small party (10 people) and it was the first thing gone. Definitely going to make it again. Thanks for sharing!!!
I made this for a pot luck at work and got great reviews! Everyone loved it!
Didn't change a thing.
Loved it! A bit different than the normal Mexi bean dips out there. I omitted the jalapenos to make it more family-friendly and added olives. Delish!
