Seven Layer Dip is a Football food must have! 

Seven Layer Dip

Actually, game-day or not, it’s just one of the best party appetizers! It’s an easy one that everyone loves and the layers of creamy deliciousness are spread into a pan and then refrigerated, making it the perfect make-ahead party food. I love making this ahead of time to take to a friends house when invited over for a watch party since it keeps so well and everyone loves it. 

This dip, obviously, has 7 layers to it. I did my own little tweaks to my seven layer dip to make it my own and here is what we have:

  1. A Bean Layer- I mix refried black beans with a little bit of salsa verde to amp up the flavor. 
  2. The Greek Yogurt layer- you can also sub in sour cream here, but I always have plain greek yogurt on hand and mixed with a little bit of taco seasoning, it’s perfect. 
  3. The Avocado Layer- this is where my 7 layer dip gets it’s best flavor. While most recipes call for guacamole, I blend up avocado with tangy pickled jalapeños for an extra zing!
  4. pico de gallo
  5. shredded lettuce 
  6. cheese
  7. green onions/other garnishes (this is where you can do whatever you want, but I add green onion, a Roma tomato, and some cilantro! None of these are necessary, but they just add an element of beauty to the dip for serving.

Serve this Seven Layer dip with chips or even veggies for dipping to amp up your party spread. So get to layering, and add this delicious dip to your next game-day party spread! It is bound to be a big hit!

      Best 7 layer I’ve ever had, hubs agrees. Packed with flavor! Only changes I made were pinto refrained beans and sour cream. I will definitely make this again! Thank you Alex!
