Tina Made Seven Layer Dip

I always stress out a little bit before potlucks. “What if nobody likes my food? What if someone gets sick? Wah wah wah.” With this recipe though, I know I’m pretty safe. Because there’s little room for failure. And who doesn’t love a good seven-layer dip?! There’s tons of variations of this recipe online, but this one (adapted from multiple recipes) is tried and true.


  • 1/2 can refried beans (8 oz.)
  • 1 can Fritos bean dip (9 oz.)
  • 1 c. guacamole
  • 1 c. sour cream
  • 1 pkg. taco seasoning
  • 1 c. shredded Jack and cheddar cheese
  • 1 can sliced black olives
  • 1 container pico de gallo/salsa (I used La Mexicana medium salsa, 16 oz.)
  • 2 bunches chopped green onion

Mix refried beans and Fritos bean dip; spread in bottom of small baking dish (8″x8″). Next, spread guacamole. If you’re ambitious, make your own guacamole. I was not.

Mix sour cream and taco seasoning; spread. Spread layer of pico de gallo/salsa. *Note: I used a wire mesh sieve to squeeze out the liquid of the salsa first!

Sprinkle cheese, then olives, then green onions, in that order.


Tempted to eat the whole dish myself. Yum.

  1. Made this for my first Bible study at Cal State Fullerton and the students (and one of the dads!) absolutely loved it! Super easy and really tasty! A for-sure winner! Thanks, Tina!
