Recipe Classic: 7 layer dip

Remember this? When hubs and I were first married, this was a staple of our diet. We probably ate tens of thousands of tons of 7 layer dip, and millions of chips to go along with it. I don’t watch sports, but I’m pretty sure this says game day.

7 Layer Dip

  • 1 can refried beans
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • chili powder
  • cumin
  • 2 C shredded cheddar
  • iceburg lettuce, shredded
  • 1 tomato, chopped (I used the last of summer’s cherry tomatoes)
  • 3 jalapenos, seeded and chopped
  • 2 green onions, sliced

Spread the refried beans in a thin layer on a serving platter. Next, smooth the sour cream on top of that. Shake some cumin and chili powder over it (not much, like less than a teaspoon – I just shake it on like salt). Sprinkle on the cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, jalapenos, and green onions, taking care to spread them evenly over the whole thing. You want to get a taste of every layer in every bite. Serve with chips.

Sometimes I put some black olives on, too, though that makes it 8 layer dip. How do you make this dip?
