 This 7-Layer Bean Dip is the ultimate game-day/party food. It’s packed with delicious flavors and is so easy to assemble.

As game day approaches, there’s nothing better than easy, delicious appetizers and finger foods! This 7-Layer Bean Dip can be made ahead of time, goes great with chips and/or veggie sticks, and it’s a relatively healthy game-day appetizer.

Of all the appetizers out there, a good 7-Layer Bean Dip has always been one of my favorites. Growing up, my mom used to make this dip all the time. She’d make 2-3 separate dips, place them in the center of the snack-bar, and all 9 of us would crowd around the dips and eat them for lunch or dinner. We were never patient enough to spoon out the dip onto individual plates– it was just grab chips and GO before it’s all gone!

Combine the following spices in a small bowl and whisk together. (This spice blend is the exact amount of one taco seasoning packet.)

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon each: paprika and ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper

If you like the convenience of tearing open a packet of taco seasoning, why not make up a big batch of this and divide it into small plastic bags holding two tablespoons each?

Ingredients

  • 1 can (15 - 16 ounces) refried beans
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) mild or medium chunky salsa
  • 1 container (13 ounces) refrigerated guacamole
  • 1 container (16 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 package (1 ounce) taco seasoning
  • 1 cup freshly grated sharp Cheddar cheese (or a Mexican blend)
  • 1/2 cup sliced olives
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro, optional
  • Tortilla chips, for serving

Instructions

  • Remove 1 cup salsa and place in a fine-mesh sieve over the sink to drain. This will keep the dip from getting soggy. Stir remaining salsa and refried beans together and spread mixture in an 8x8 or 9x9-inch casserole dish or a 2-quart baking dish.
  • Top with guacamole. Stir together sour cream and seasoning mix in a small bowl. Spread over the guacamole layer.
  • Top evenly with layers of the remaining (strained) salsa, cheese, olives, green onions and/or cilantro. Cover and chill for 30 minutes to 2 hours before serving. Serve with tortilla chips. 🙂

Recipe Notes

  • Nutritional information does not include the tortilla chips.
