Today I’m sharing my “FAMOUS” 7 – Layer Bean Dip & Guacamole recipes with you all. Now I will warn you…once you make this for your friends or family they WILL beg you to make it again! It’s seriously a huge hit for every party I’ve made it for and event or gathering. I like to think of it as my one “specialty” dish I never get wrong and make really well. Especially since I’m not the worlds greatest cook, but I try.
Let’s get started…We are going to start with the Guacamole first since you’ll need to know this recipe for the 7 – Layer Bean Dip.
After taking the pits from each of the avocados place them in to a food processor, if you don’t have one you could try using your blender if you have a good one. Worse comes to worse you can do this all by hand using a fork or a potato masher. But the food processor works best.
Once the avocados are in the processor add the cilantro, red onion, tomatoes, seasonings, lime juice, and milk. Blend it all together, I really get it super creamy and smooth usually…that’s how I like it. I know some people like it chunky, if you do just leave the milk out of the recipe. Try it super creamy though, you will love it.
When it’s all blended pour in to a bowl or spread on to your 7 – Layer Bean Dip. Mine is a little chunky here because I used a small food processor, usually it’s like super smooth and will normally use my full size food processor.
Now for the 7 – Layer Bean Dip. This recipe makes a enough for a 9 x 13 casserole dish. I ended up cutting the recipe in half for today to fit in a 8 x 8 dish.
– 1 Large Can of Refried Beans or 2 Regular Sized Cans, seasoned
– 1 x 16 oz. Container of Sour Cream
– 1 x 8 oz. Bag of Cheddar Jack Shredded Cheese
– Guacamole from the earlier recipe
– 1 Packet of Taco Seasoning
– 1 to 2 Cups Finely Diced Roma Tomatoes
– 1 Can Large Pitted Black Olives, Sliced
– 1 Bunch Green Scallions, Finely Chopped
First layer is your refried beans. Layer it nice and evenly on the bottom of your dish.
Now layer it on top of your beans in the dish. Add the guacamole layer, the entire bag of shredded Cheddar Jack cheese, roma tomatoes, black olives, and top with green scallions.
