Ultimate Seven Layer Dip
From Cook's Country
With bold Southwestern flavors and an appealing ingredient list, seven-layer dip recipes sound like a hit. But most versions of this party classic assume that guests won’t notice the messy layers and tired flavors. Canned black beans stood in for refried beans in our Ultimate Seven-Layer Dip recipe, while garlic, chili powder, and lime juice added flavor. We found that sour cream on its own quickly watered down our Ultimate Seven-Layer Dip recipe, but combining it with cheese gave its layer more structure.
Serves 8 to 10
This recipe is usually served in a clear dish so you can see the layers. For a crowd, double the recipe and serve in a 13 by 9-inch glass baking dish. If you don't have time to make fresh guacamole as called for, simply mash 3 avocados with 3 tablespoons lime juice and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
