This has been made for years in both my husband's family and now mine. I make it for all gatherings - friends and family. Always a winner and the dish always gets emptied! Try using zesty no-fat refried beans and red-cal sour cream and low fat cheeses.

This dip has /always/ bee a favorite of mine - and though it may be easier to just get it from the neighborhood deli, nothing beats making it from 'scratch' if you ask me!! I've taken it several times to gatherings, always thinking I've made too much, and haven't ever brought any back with me. :)

I like the way the beans had extra flavor, with the salsa, taco mix and a little sour cream, instead of "just beans". However, when I make this, (and I make it often), I always put the guacamole under the sour cream. Guacamole turns brown so easily, and if it is going to wait to be served for any amount of time, it could turn before served if exposed. My preference, anyway.

I originally rated this recipe as being too salty, but after waiting until the next day I found that the flavors had melded and it was delicious. I would definitely make this again.

I made this for my brother's birthday party and it was a big hit. This was my first time ever making 7-layer dip. I've always wanted to make it because I am not a fan of sour cream and the dip ALWAYS contains a layer of sour cream. So what I did was make the recipe exactly as written (including adding the sour cream to the beans)... and then when I assembled the layers I left just one narrow edge of the pan with no sour cream layer. Just for me. ;D It was DELICIOUS and I will totally be making this again and again. I might even make it for dinner sometime, it's that good.

I made this a few weekends ago and ate it with friends who ranted and raved about how great it was. :) I omitted the guacamole b/c DH doesn't like it, and we heated the dip in the microwave before serving (I made it in a large tupperware). Stored in the fridge overnight and ate the second half the next day - tasted even better to me once the flavors melded a little. Thanks for sharing this yummy, easy recipe!

This was so good! It disappeared very quickly in our house and I'll definitely be making it again. Loved the addition of salsa and taco seasoning! :)
