I'm so excited to be kicking off the Game Day Appetizers series, and so honored to have some of my favorite bloggers joining me later this week:
You may remember from my post on Friday, I'm not big on football. But since I love food, and I'm pretty sure you do too, I'm here to share one of my favorite go-to dip recipes!
I'm sure you've all heard of the basic Seven Layer Dip, right? It's a standard party dip, but my recipe kicks it up a notches. I've been using it for years, but can't remember where it originally came from.
Nine Layer Dip
1-14 oz can refried beans
6 slices bacon
1 cup of guacamole
8 oz sour cream
2 tsp taco seasoning
1 cup shredded Mexican cheese
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
2 tbsp sliced olives
3 green onion, diced (with chives)
Fry bacon until crispy and dice. Drain most of the fat out of the pan, leaving a couple tablespoons behind. (This past is completely optional, but really adds to the flavor). Add the beans and stir frequently until everything is mixed thoroughly.
Mix sour cream and taco seasoning and set aside.
Build your dip, layer by layer, in a large casserole dish or pie plate, or in individual jars, like I did.
(the jars are available at Target - a set of four is under $5).
Spread a scoop of beans first, then guacamole, and finally the sour cream. Sprinkle with cheese.
Top with diced tomatoes, olives, and green onions.
Serve with hearty tortilla chips.
Stress on the "hearty " - I bought the new Tostitos Cantina Style chips, which are thin and crispy and absolutely delicious, but not made for this kind of dip!
(and no this is not a sponsored post)
If you would prefer the one pan method, just layer all of the ingredients as listed in a square casserole or round pie plate.
Be sure to check back each day this week for more delicious (and easy!) appetizer recipes!
