    Heather3271's Note:

    While many incarnations exist, I have tailored my recipe to meet my dietary needs (food allergies/migraines). This dip uses lower fat and natural ingredients and is vegetarian-friendly, too. Feel free to modify to suit your tastes. That's what cooking (or in this case layering) is all about!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 (16 ounce) cans refried black beans (I like La Preferida 99% Fat-Free)
    • 1 (16 ounce) jar all-natural salsa (I prefer Frog Ranch Chipotle)
    • 32 ounces all-natural sour cream (I like Daisy)
    • 12 ounces all-natural guacamole (I like Calavo)

    Assorted toppings to taste


    1. 1
      In large mixing bowl, combine refried beans and salsa. Consistency should be that of cake frosting--spreadable but not thick. Adjust amount of salsa accordingly.
    2. 2
      Spread bean and salsa mixture onto serving platter. (I use the back of a metal serving spoon.).
    3. 3
      Layer remaining ingredients.
    4. 4
      Serve with Baked Tostitos Scoops Tortilla Chips.
    5. 5
      NOTES: Also great as a meal. Even my green-veggie-phobic children devour this dish! This recipe is moderately spicy. Change the heat of the salsa to adjust. You could also top with jalapenos or other hot peppers to add more heat. I sometimes use different greens (prepackaged salad mixes) instead of iceberg lettuce and use different cheeses (pepperjack kicks it up a few notches!).

      Yum, yum, yum, yummy! That is all I can say. I made this with fat free refried beans, Costco's salsa, and a homemade guacamole and it turned out wonderful. I also used all of the "assorted toppings" except the pimento stuffed olives just because I thought that they might be a little too salty for my taste. I also drained the salsa before adding it to the beans because in another 7 layer dip recipe I didn't drain it and the end product was pretty soupy and gross. This time it turned out great, and I will probably be eating this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner until it is gone. lol! Thanks for a great recipe! :)
