Gatorbek's 7 Layer Party Dip

“This came from my mom, who I'm sure got it from someone/somewhere else, but I changed it a smidge. (I don't like lettuce on it, since the next day, the lettuce gets soggy. If you like lettuce, or know it will be gone in 1 day, feel free!) I make this for every party, and it's always a hit.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (16 ounce) cans refried beans (I prefer the ones with green chilies)
  • 16 ounces sour cream (low fat is fine)
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning (I prefer McCormick HOT taco seasoning, but anything will work)
  • 2 cups prepared guacamole
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 2 tomatoes, diced and drained
  • 1 cup black olives, sliced
  • 14 cup green onion, sliced thin


  1. Thoroughly mix taco seasoning with sour cream. Let sit for at least an hour to dissolve the powder or it will be gritty.
  2. In a 13 x 9 casserole dish, or similarly sized party dish, spread the following layers, taking care not to mix them.
  3. Refried beans.
  4. Guacamole.
  5. Sour cream mixture.
  6. Cheese.
  7. Tomatoes.
  8. Black olives.
  9. Green onions.
  10. (If you're using lettuce, put it between the sour cream and cheese.).
  11. Serve with tortilla chips.
