Seven Layer Dip

Seven Layer DipMy kitchen has been hot lately--hot I tell you. It's all that pre-Christmas rush to get goodies baked so I'm going to take a bit of a break this week and post recipes each day.

Of course from the things I'll be posting you'd probably assume we eat nothing but good ol' fashioned, gut-destroying refined sugar and artery-clogging fats but that's just for special occasions. Normally we eat healthily but I figure we all need a break now and then from the rules and what better time to give in to complete self-indulgence and gluttony than during the religious observance of Christmas?

Here's one of my favorite appetizers because, as we all know, Tex-Mex always hits the spot. Of course with seven layers to this thing there is something to offend everyone in the house unless you're like me who likes it all.

More recipes tomorrow . . .

1 10-ounce can bean dip
1 cup sour cream
1 package taco seasoning mix
1 tub guacamole
1 large green onion, sliced
3 medium Roma tomatoes, diced
2 3-ounce cans sliced olives
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar
taco chips

Layer the above ingredients on a plate one by one starting by spreading out the bean dip on a round dinner plate then mixing the sour cream and taco seasoning together and spreading it over top of bean dip then spreading a layer of guacamole, onions, tomatoes, olives and cheddar.

Dig in with taco chips and you'll be eating more than you probably should.

This is one of my fave dips, but as you say, I could eat the whole thing in one sitting. Great for super bowl parties!

The only time we ever had this was when we went down to my in-laws in Chicago. Man, it was expensive to buy!! I'm printing the recipe and making my own for this time of year!

Merry Christmas,

Now this is a great dip. Mostly because I have every thing already and it's so easy to make. Just pile it on, no mixing or timing involved!

I used to always make this to take places, but my seven layers were sometimes different, and sometimes there were fewer than 7. Now I live in a place where everyone makes it. I went to a party last summer, dip and tortilla chips in hand, only to discover that 5 other people had the same great idea that I did! :)
