2 (8 ounce) packages
cream cheese, softened
1 (8 ounce) container
hot pepper sauce
1 (16 ounce) jar
green onions, chopped
1 (2 ounce) can
sliced black olives
iceberg lettuce - rinsed, dried, and shredded
finely shredded Cheddar cheese
tomatoes, seeded and chopped
Wow! Everyone loved this one, and has requested this to be a "keeper." I used a can of crushed tomatoes in place of the chopped fresh, and it was still good. If you have no finely shredded cheese, other shreds will do, but the texture may not be to your liking: it is bumpy. This is a great dip.
I FOUND THIS RECIPE TO BE VERY BLAND AND WATERY. I WILL NOT MAKE THIS AGAIN.
This is the best 7 layer dip recipe I've tried yet. And if you use light sour cream and light cream cheese it's still just as yummy.
Very easy to make and tasty!! A HUGE hit at all gatherings, my 9 year old daughter requests this sometimes "just because"!
Made this for a party and it was devoured by a group of men. I used mild salsa but will use either medium or hot next time as the dip was not spicy enough.
Awesome dip. I drained some of the juice from the salsa and drained and seeded the tomato, which made it less soupy. It still was great the next day as well.
This is a great recipe because it doesn't include the mushy beans. However, I did change it a bit based on the reviews. I omitted the soy sauce, lemon juice, hot sauce, olives (not generally a crowd favorite) and tomatoes (seemed to be the cause of watery mess and there is enough tomato product in the salsa). I creamed together the sour cream and cream cheese with a half a package of hot taco seasoning. Then I layered as instructed with medium chunky salsa, green onions, roman lettuce, and cheddar cheese. I felt the hot taco seasoning and medium salsa made this dish not bland as other commented. You can always temper the seasonings to your taste with the salsa, hot sauce, and taco seasoning. I also had no issues with juices, even after a night in the fridge.
I made this for a work party and it was a hit. I made the cream cheese mixture the night before and added the other "stuff" an hour before the work party. I think I would probably drain the salsa a little though, it made it a little watery, but it was still a hit. I was the only one worried about it, but it went. I even added some Mexican cheese, red - yellow peppers, avacado - it looked great and tasted great. Awesome recipe.
