7-Layer Mexican Dip

This irresistible 7-Layer Mexican Dip is a touchdown at every gathering, big or small!  It’s perfect for Game Day or any time you have hungry friends coming over.  It’s everyone’s favorite thing to dip their chips into, and this particular recipe is super easy and a total winner.  

7 - Layer Mexican Dip

Has anyone ever taken a hard fall, smack onto the tailbone and injured/fractured it?  I did just that this weekend.  I was standing on top of my kitchen counter and fell straight backwards, my backside landing smack dab on the hardwood floors.  I never knew tailbone injury means such excruciating pain.

At least I can still type.  While sitting on my donut-cushion.  Guess those aren’t just for post-baby-birth.

I think it’s safe to say I’ll (probably) never stand on the countertop again.  In my head, I somehow think I’m still that nimble little monkey-bar-climbing girl.  Uh, reality check.  Reality can be painful sometimes.

Thankfully, I have a few Game Day goodies I recently made and ate (with friends, of course!) prior to The Fall…

7-Layer Mexican Dip 3

Let’s talk chips ‘n dip.  Specifically, this unforgettable 7-Layer Mexican Dip that is out of this world.

This dip is a marvelous symphony of layers…refried beans, browned beef, guacamole, seasoned sour cream, veggies, and lots of cheese.  It’s perfection in one big platter.  People are more than happy to grab a huge spoon and shovel plenty of dip onto their plates.

This healthy spinach artichoke dip is another fan favorite for parties!

7-Layer Mexican Dip 2

Many 7-layer dips don’t necessarily include browned ground beef, but I love the flavor and gusto of ground beef with taco seasoning.  It’s like eating tacos, but in dip form.  Guess this could have also been called a Taco Dip.

Whatever you want to call it, it’s undeniably mouthwatering and delicious!

Game Day, SuperBowl, or any day get-togethers…make this and watch it disappear.  Be sure to have plenty of good corn chips laying around!

    Years ago while playing in a softball game I slipped on the wet grass and ended up falling backwards and landing on my tail bone while in the sitting up position. It knocked me out for a couple of seconds and I was just sitting there in the grass. People thought that since I was sitting up that I was OK, but I wasn’t getting up. Doctor said I “bruised” my coccyx. After a month I went back for more x-rays, I couldn’t believe the pain and how uncomfortable it was. So I sympathize with you. Just give it a while to heal (years), take the pillow where ever you go and sit sideways in all chairs and cross your legs like a lady (to keep pressure off your butt). Hopefully this will work for you too. Good Luck
    Oh, and I will let you know how my dip turned out.

    So sorry to hear about your fall!! I hope that you’re feeling better soon. We take our everyday actions for granted, don’t we? That the simple act of sitting down (an act that is supposed to give us rest) can bring you such pain, makes me feel so bad for you.

    The dips are fabulous… Dips and Prudy are so dangerous together…I have no willpower when it comes to them, and pretty much succumb to my weakness when they’re around!! Yum.. 🙂

      Thanks for the well wishes! And I’m with you, dips and me are a dangerous combo! Thanks for coming over, Prudy 🙂

    Oh so sorry about your fall! I had a similar injury snowboarding… so sad! Never knew it could hurt so bad to sit. Hope you recovery quickly so you can keep up with your boys. Love the recipe!

      • chewoutloud

      Thanks for the well wishes, Julie! I can’t believe I never hurt myself like that all the times I went snowboarding — and instead, I break my behind falling off a kitchen counter! The irony. Thanks for coming by today and bringing your kind words with you! 🙂

    I love that someone like me, who may have to work until 3 on Sunday, could still put this together and enjoy it by 3:30 kickoff. We are totally stealing the black bean avocado salsa idea, incidentally.

      • chewoutloud

      Yes, it comes together quick’n easy, and totally deeee-lish! The black bean avocado salsa is a super duper winner, too. Recipes are meant to be shared, and so glad we can share with you 🙂
