7 Layer Dip

This 7-layer dip is the ultimate appetizer idea for a party.It’s got layers of your favorite Mexican ingredients including refried beans,cream cheese, guacamole, sour cream, salsa, cheese, and more!


  • 16 ounces chunky salsa
  • 1 16 oz. can Refried Beans
  • 1 1 oz. packet Taco Seasoning
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 ½ cups Sour Cream, separated
  • 2 cups guacamole, 16 oz.
  • 1 cup cheddar or Mexican Cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup Shredded Lettuce, or 4 sliced green onions
  • ½ cup Black Olives
  • Tortilla Chips, for serving


  • Drain excess juice from salsa to prevent the dip from being wet. You may choose to run it through a sieve as well (product link in notes). Set aside.
  • Combine the refried beans, taco seasoning, cream cheese, and ½ cup sour cream. Use a silicone spatula to spread on the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish.
  • Add the remaining layers in the following order: Guacamole, Sour Cream, Salsa, Cheese, Lettuce, Black Olives.
  • Chill for 60 minutes prior to serving.


  • Store for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
  • The layers may bleed together a bit and I don't recommend making it ahead to serve 3 days later, but the leftovers still taste great.
