I made this 7 Layer Dip for the Halloween Party this past Halloween at my Brother-in-Law’s house. I know a few people who would make this dip very basic. You’d probably find the same basic recipe online too. The ground beef is browned, seasoned with salt & pepper, then the oil is drained before layering it first on the bottom of a pan. My 7 Layer dip is not quite like that. I treat my beef special . I add something more besides just salt and pepper.
- 1 package (2-3 lbs) ground beef
- 1 packet taco seasoning mix
- 1 jar con queso
- 1 can refried beans
- 1 jar white corn/black beans salsa OR plain salsa
- 1 can of sliced black olives, drained
- 1 container sour cream
- sliced tomatoes, cubed
- chopped green onions
- shredded cheddar cheese
- tortilla chips (scoop kind are the best)
Brown ground beef, drain the oil. Stir in the taco seasoning mix. Add the refried beans. Stir until the refried beans is blended onto the meat.
Add the con queso. Stir and let it cook for a few (2 maybe) minutes. Turn the heat off.
Transfer the ground beef mixture onto a pan.
Layer the black olives on top..
then the salsa….
then the sour cream..
then the tomatoes and green onions…
And lastly, the shredded cheddar cheese.
This is the kind of dip where you scoop a big spoonful into a plate, then grab a few of the tortilla chips, put ‘em around the dip and VOILA. A great dish for parties such as Superbowl, Halloween, Poker Night, Award shows, etc…
I just made this again tonight actually (pictures were from Halloween) for my Brother-in-Law’s UFC party. The guys are at his house tonight and they asked me to make the 7 layer dip for their UFC Pay-Per-View soiree
