DIRECTIONS

  • 1. In a medium bowl, blend the taco seasoning mix and refried beans. Spread the mixture onto a large serving platter.
  • 2. Mix the sour cream and cream cheese in a medium bowl. Spread over the refried beans.
  • 3. Top the layers with salsa. Place a layer of tomato, green bell pepper, green onions and lettuce over the salsa, and top with Cheddar cheese. Garnish with black olives.
  • My Note: Sometime I do not use lettuce (as it tends to wilt as it sits out) and I don't use a lot of green pepper. Even though I love green pepper, I don't feel it belongs in this recipe (just my opinion). I make homemade guacamole and put that layer on top of the sour cream/cream cheese layer. I found a good guac recipe on this site (Simple Guacamole) that I use. They always "lick the platter clean" every single time. I've NEVER had leftovers. I serve with Tostitos Scoops as they grab the dip more! Oh and this doesnt' totally spread to fit in a 13x9 pan (mostly the beans don't) so I bought a clear pyrex dish a slightly smaller size. This dish has pretty much become my 7-layer dip dish because it's requested so much at every party! This is an awesome crowd pleaser.
  • This recipe is very good as is, but is also easy to alter to personal taste. I have took suggestions of others and added 1 lb. of hamburger to the taco seasoning and guacamole instead of lettuce, both very good. I however like this recipe best with medium taco seasoning and salsa and also adding a can of Rotel instead of the tomato, green pepper, onions. Very easy and adds a bit of a kick to it. The 13X9in. dish works the best.
