Seven layers of heaven…

A spicy seven layer taco dip takes only minutes to make, but it’ll keep you and your guests munching for hours. It’s the perfect quick dip that tastes like you’ve put a whole lot more time into it. If fresh jalapeños are too spicy, opt for a can of milder green chilies. Or, if you’re like us, add a few more jalapeños in to spice things up even further.

  • 1 can refried beans 16 ounce
  • 1 jar chunky salsa
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1 package cream cheese
  • 1 package shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 can sliced olives drained
  • 4 to 5 jalapeño peppers seeded and diced
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 tomato diced


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the refried beans and taco seasoning. Stir until fully mixed, then layer the beans evenly in a large serving platter.
  • In another mixing bowl mix the jalapeños and the cream cheese until fully combined, then spread the cream cheese mix evenly over the refried beans in the serving platter.
  • One by one, spread the remaining ingredients over the beans and sour cream: salsa, then lettuce, cheese, olives, and finally tomato.
  • Recommended: Refrigerate the dip for one hour prior to serving.
  • Serve with tortilla chips.


If jalapeños are too spicy, swap them out for one jar of canned green chilies.
