Laura's Seven Layer Dip

by Laura

It wouldn’t be a Super Bowl without a good dip and this 7 Layer dip is a fan favorite.  This is my twist on the classic dip. Most recipes use a combination of sour cream with taco seasoning,  but I like to make mine using ranch dip!  I also made it this time in individual cups.  They look so cute and make sure there is no double dipping.  However, there is a down side to the cups.
The recipe makes 8 individual cups but the amount in each cup is really too much for 1 serving.  One cup really should be shared.  It was really too much for one person to eat all by themselves.  So I have included instructions on how to make them in the cups and how to make it in one large dish.  The individual sized dips need to be made in the 9 oz tumbler cups because you need the top of the cup to be large enough to dip into.  Whether you go for the individual cups or the party sized platter – it will be devoured.

  2. Mix the dip mix into the sour cream and carefully place a couple of spoonfuls of the ranch dip on top of the beans. Spread to make an even layer.
  3. Repeat the above process creating a layer with the guacamole followed by a layer of the salsa.

http://www.partycity.com has a 5 oz. cup just like these that’s flared at the top. I’m getting ready to use them to make these for a baby shower soon.

I made this 7 layer dip tonight to go along with a spicy zucchini blackbean and rice skillet (this dish being one of my husband’s favorite meals) and he literally pushed away his plate and ate only the dip for dinner lol. He said it was the best dip he had ever tasted and I had to agree. We have both had 7 layer dip before but I think the ranch mix in the sour cream along with my own twist on the guacamole made it over-the-top awesome! Thanks for posting.
The only thing I did different was use my own guacamole recipe (avocado mixed with chopped onion, minced garlic, lime juice, sea salt, roma tomatoes w/o seeds, a pinch of cayenne pepper, and a couple spoonfuls of salsa).

These individual cups are not too big for our crowd! We can always eat a ton of that stuff.
