A highly rated seven-layer taco dip recipe is one from AllRecipes.com. This recipe takes about 30 minutes to prepare and is perfect for serving at a party or a large family gathering.
To make the seven-layer dip, start by blending together a 1-ounce package of taco seasoning and a 16-ounce can of refried beans. Spread the bean mixture onto the bottom of a serving platter. Mix together an 8-ounce package of softened cream cheese and a 16-ounce container of sour cream. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the bean mixture. Top the cream cheese layer with a layer of salsa from a 16-ounce jar.
Continue the layers with a large chopped tomato, a chopped green pepper, a bunch of chopped green onions, and a small head of shredded iceburg lettuce. Top all the layers with 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese and garnish with a 6-ounce drained can of black olives. Serve with tortilla chips for dipping.
If desired, the salsa can be substituted for a cup of prepared guacamole or a homemade guacamole. Also, for a lower-fat version, substitute a reduced-fat sour cream and reduced-fat cheese. The tortilla chips may also be substituted with baked tortilla chips or pita chips.
