Watching football this weekend? Attending a family friendly New Year’s Eve party? Me too. There is no better tailgate snack food for football watching and potlucks than a Mexican 7-layer dip. I will be bringing this crowd favorite to a friend’s house tonight, and I made individual sizes, so we can keep eating more dip during football games tomorrow. Normally, I like to use a layer of diced tomatoes instead of salsa. I forgot the tomatoes at the grocery store, so I went with the salsa layer, which is a totally acceptable substitute. You can see my original recipe with the diced tomatoes HERE. I know many people have a version of this recipe, but I think the Fritos Original Bean Dip and the taco seasoning mixed in with the sour cream makes this variation a little special. Happy New Year!
- 2 (9-oz) cans Fritos Original Bean Dip
- 1 container guacamole (about 10 oz.)
- ~2 cups salsa
- 1 pkg mild taco seasoning
- ~12 oz. sour cream
- 2 c. Mexican cheese blend, grated
- 3 green onions, chopped
- scoop Frito’s or tortilla chips
- Scoop the 2 cans of bean dip into a 9 x 13 casserole dish and spread evenly across the bottom with a spatula.
- Dollop the guacamole on top of the bean dip and gently spread out using the spatula. Try not to disturb the bean dip layer. It’s kind of like frosting a cake.
- Dollop the salsa on top of the guacamole layer and spread gently.
- In a small bowl (or the sour cream container), mix the taco seasoning with the sour cream. Combine well. It will be a light orange color. Spread the sour cream mixture over the guac and salsa. Gently spread with the spatula trying not to disrupt the layer beneath.
- Sprinkle the grated cheese on top.
- Sprinkle the green onions over the cheese.
- Serve with Frito scoops or tortilla chips.
- Can be made ahead. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
- Make individual layered dips in ramekins or the clear 9-oz. plastic cups.
