7 Layer Dip Ingredients
Taco Seasoning. The secret to this 7 layer dip recipe is the homemade taco seasoning! You could use a little packet of taco seasoning but I am telling you, the homemade taco dip with homemade taco seasoning is sooo much better!
Avocado or Guacamole. Now I will say that when I make this I normally make homemade Guacamole instead of using the mashed avocados, either one will work perfectly in this cold taco dip recipe. If I am running short on time then I stick with the exact directions of this recipe. But if you are going to be using guacamole in your 7 layer dip, then omit the avocados, garlic powder, salt, and pepper from the recipe.
Refried Beans. If you are not a fan of beans, you can make this taco dip without beans, just skip putting them in and continue on with the rest of the taco dip layers.
Sour Cream. This layer is mixed with the taco seasoning. I like to make my life easier sometimes and just add the taco seasoning into the sour cream container and mix it in that instead of making more dishes.
Salsa. Salsa is optional, but if using it then you can use homemade salsa or jarred salsa.
Shredded cheddar cheese. If you do not have cheddar you can use other flavors of cheese. Mexican cheese blend and Taco cheese blend are my other favorites to use.
How to Make the BEST Layered Dip
Spread your refried beans onto your serving plater.
In a mixing bowl mash your avocados together with the garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Spread the avocado mixture over the top of the beans. (If you are using homemade guacamole skip this and make the guacamole and use that)
In another mixing bowl combined the sour cream and taco seasoning together. Spread this mixture over the top of the avocado (or guacamole) layer.
Shred the cheddar cheese and sprinkle the cheese over the top of the sour cream layer.
Slice the olives and sprinkle the olives over the top of the cheese layer.
Dice the tomatoes and sprinkle the tomatoes over the top of the olives.
Sprinkle the scallions over the top of the tomatoes.
You can add a dollop of sour cream to the top of the dip if you want to.
