SPECIAL SEVEN LAYER TACO DIP
I am continuously asked to bring this dip for parties and family get-togethers. People gather around the platter until it’s gone.
I make a recipe very similar to this. I do not use lettuce (as it tends to wilt as it sits out) and I don’t use green pepper. Even though I love green pepper, I don’t feel it belongs in this recipe (just my opinion). I make homemade guacamole and put that layer on top of the sour cream/cream cheese layer. I found a good guac recipe on this site (LuvAnn’s Guacamole) that I use. They always “lick the platter clean” every single time. I’ve NEVER had leftovers. I serve with Tostitos Scoops as they grab the dip more! Oh and this doesnt’ totally spread to fit in a 13×9 pan (mostly the beans don’t) so I bought a clear pyrex dish a slightly smaller size. This dish has pretty much become my 7-layer dip dish because it’s requested so much at every party! This is an awesome crowd pleaser.
