A MEXICAN INSPIRED DIP RECIPE
If you’re having a bunch of folks over, then you know you need to make this 7-layer dip. It is so simple but everyone absolutely loves it! You can serve the layered dip along with tortilla chips and then have a tray of veggies and ranch dip. In my opinion, having a few different options for everyone to graze on is not only easier on the host, but then everyone can help themselves and go back as many times as they want for more! I promise, everyone will want to know what your secret ingredient is!
TIPS FOR MAKING 7 LAYER DIP:
- You can make this as easy or as hard as you want! You can skip the bean dip and make your own refried beans, your own guacamole and even your own ranch dip. It’s all up to you. Personally, I like to keep it easy!
- Want a kick of flavor? Try mixing the bean dip with one packet of taco seasoning before layering it in the dish!
- If you prefer, you can add a layer of salsa in this as well.
- This can be made a day in advance. Just make sure to cover it well and keep in the refrigerator.
- Don’t like ranch dip? No problem, just substitute it with sour cream.

We all loved this recipe! The only change was because I had forgotten the ranch dip so I had to improvise – took a package of ranch dressing, a pack of dry vegetable soup, with 1 cup each sour cream and mayonnaise. To give it a twist I topped a portion (mine) with candied jalapeños which really put it over the top. My less adventurous guests raved as well so this will be on our appetizer list from here on out. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us!
It’s a great dip for anytime.
In my case I have to make two; 1 with guacamole and 1 without. Nothing like having a divided family when it comes to something like this. but this 7 layer dip is always a big hit at family gatherings.
I’ve never seen Great Value Bean Dip at a Walmart in those kind of containers, like sour cream. I’ve only found and used the canned Bean Dip. And instead of that Marzetti Ranch Dip, I use a pint of sour cream mixed with a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Fiesta Dip dry mix.
Never have seen bean dip would love to try.
I made this recipe for our Halloween Party and everyone loved it. I have made it before and used the guacamole that is shown in the photo above, but our Walmart no longer carries the Marketside brand, so I chose another one and it was a bit spicier, but still very good. I reversed the order of the veggie dip and guacamole and then used a small amount of sour cream thinned down with milk and made a spider web on top of the guacamole. Put a spider ring in the center and put my olives, green onions, tomatoes and cheese around the outside, leaving the web showing in the center. I got that idea from another website. Everyone thought it was so cute.
