"My mom's Seven Layer Dip is a big hit at all small gatherings! Refried beans are layered with guacamole, seasoned sour cream, veggies and cheese. It's perfect for dipping tortilla chips! The dip traditionally takes less time to disappear into bellies than it does to prepare."

Great dip! Fun and easy, but not cheap. Have always relied on this recipe as a crowd pleaser. For a low-fat version that has just as much flavor, use fat free refried beans, reduced fat sour cream and reduced fat (or 2%) sharp cheddar cheese... don't much care for the flavor of the Mexican cheese blend... it might depend on the brand of cheese. Hints for making guacamole: Make sure avacados are dark green and slightly mushy. Instead of peeling the avacados, it's easier to just cut them in half, pop out the pit, and scoop the flesh out with a spoon. Go ahead and squeeze the juice of one whole lime onto the avacado... no need to measure it. In addition to adding taco seasoning to the sour cream, I also mix some with the refried beans. I prefer to spread the guacamole first, then the sour cream, since the guac is heavier. Lastly, throw on some jalapenos with the other toppings for an extra little kick.

i have made this dip so many times for work, every time we have a "party" its requirement! sometimes if the tomatoes don't look good in the store, i will substitute those for a layer of salsa, and it tastes excellent too. i also like mine spicy so i put in extra taco seasoning plus ancho chili powder. i've even used light sour cream and light cheese and no one knew the wiser! lastly, i like to buy the chopped olives in the can, they are so easy to use and bite sized... comes out great every time!!

I made this for my Super Bowl party and my guests loved it! I personally just don't like the stuff in it but I am told it was really great!
