7 Layer Bean Dip

A favorite party food of mine has always been 7-layer bean dip.

It’s so easy to make, and it’s so good.

I start with a layer of refried beans.  I make my own refried beans, they aren’t difficult.

Then I do a layer of salsa (or pico de gallo), and then guacamole.

Next, a good amount of sour cream.  I LOVE sour cream.  (If you want some extra kick, you can add 1/2 tsp chipotle powder to the sour cream, before spreading it on.)

Top that with grated cheese, sliced olives, and sliced green onions.  Wasn’t that easy!?
