Whenever I eat this dip, I am brought back to my childhood. We would have this for dinner, as an afternoon snack, or in our lunches on school days.  It’s easy to make and great to serve for the Superbowl and other parties.

7 Layer Bean Dip


1 (32 oz) can of Old El Paso refried beans (I sometimes make my own)

1 (8oz) can of tomato sauce or red salsa (depending how spicy your group is)

few dashes of garlic powder

couple dashes of italian seasonings

1 cup guacamole

1 cup sour cream

1 cup monterrey jack cheese, shredded

2 tomatoes, diced

2 green onions, chopped

sliced olives (optional)

bag of tortilla chips

fresh cut veggies


Grab a large microwave safe bowl or glass plan and spread beans in the bottom. Next in a small bowl, stir together tomato sauce, garlic powder and italian seasonings. Pour over beans and spread to cover. Warm up in the microwave for 3 minutes or until warmed through. Your next layer is the guacamole, followed by the diced tomatoes. Sour cream is next, spread evenly across the top. Put the cheese on and then the green onions. You can also add olives, if desired.

Serve with fresh veggies and tortilla chips.

If you’re making this ahead, you can skip the warming step and just serve it cold. It’s delicious either way.
