Mexican 7 Layer Dip is basically the same everywhere, refried beans- typically pinto, guacamole, sour cream, cheese, salsa or tomatoes, olives and green onions.

I had my very first 7 Layer Dip from a friend in high school, Steffanie Leopard who totally rocked it at a Young Women’s get together (girls ages 12-18) from my church. We all sat down and dug in, absolutely loving every bite. Oh to be young and not think a moment about what we are eating.

Our Best Mexican 7 Layer Dip takes things to a whole new level. I mean, we love the original, but I was missing some flavor and on a whim I decided that you know what, even if this isn’t what the rest of the blogosphere is doing, if it’s the best Mexican 7 layer dip then who cares if it’s different as long as it’s awesome!


It’s garnish time! We have been more drawn to tomatoes versus salsa lately. I feel like the salsa gets a tad watery and that can ruin the thick and creamy dip, and it definitely can make the cheese soggy quite quickly. However, salsa is awesome so you really can’t go wrong in using that instead.

We like to use grape tomatoes because they have great flavor, and they don’t release as much water as the basic vine or roma tomato.


1 package (1 ounce) taco seasoning mix
1 can (16 ounce) refried beans
1 package (8 ounce) cream cheese, softened
1 container (16 ounce) sour cream
1 jar (16 ounce) salsa
1 large tomato, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 bunch scallion, chopped
1 small head iceberg lettuce, shredded
1 can (6 ounce) sliced black olives, drained
2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded


In a medium bowl, blend the taco seasoning mix and refried beans. Spread the mixture onto a large serving platter.
Mix the sour cream and cream cheese in a medium bowl. Spread over the refried beans.
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.
