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…

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!

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!

    Thanks so much for the dip recipes! I hate to admit it but I can totally pig out and fill up on a good dip recipe with chips or crispy baguette slices!
    I too broke my butt a few years ago while salt water fishing. Had a big King Mac on the line and was on the side of the boat reeling, went to step backwards onto the food cooler to get to the bottom of the boat and my (now ex) husband had left the lid open on the cooler! I fell backwards hard & broke my tail bone but did reel in the fish all while saying a few expletives! It’s a pain like no other and still gives me fits today (sorry to tell you that)!
    Hang in there and keep the recipes coming! I really enjoy your blog! Have a great weekend!
