Seven Layer Dip

Superbowl Sunday is the annual seven layer dip day at our place. Throughput the year its salsa and queso but Superbowl means the layer dip. Its very simple to make but very flavorful and filling. This is an approximate quantity dish, you may use more or less of any ingredient as per your liking. Also the number the layers change depending upon the ingredients available but the name remains the same. I am posting the recipe as it should be. I didn't do the guacamole layer as I couldn't find a ripe avocado. You can add corn, olives or jalapenos layers if you like them. Also you can make the dip low fat by using black beans instead of refried, low fat or fat free sour cream and reduced fat cheese.This dish goes to PJ's No cook event and to Fun and Food cafe's Superbowl recipe carnival and Special Giveaway.


1 16 oz can refried beans
1 tablespoon taco seasoning
1 16 oz jar salsa
1 1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 1/2 cups guacamole (I couldn't get ripe avacado so I skipped this)
1 cup pico de gallo or chopped tomato
3/4th cup shredded Mexican cheese

Have a serving dish ready. I used a 9x9 glass dish. Mix the refried beans and the taco seasoning. Make a uniform layer in the serving dish. Next layer the sour cream. Then comes the salsa layer followed by guacamole. This is followed by a generous layer of shredded lettuce. Next layer - pico de gallo or tomato. Finally sprinkle cheese. Serve with tortilla chips.
