Amazing 7 Layer Dip

I had planned to share Broccoli and Cheese Twice Baked Potatoes today, but guess what? I started getting comments on it the 15th, which totally made me scratch my head since I hadn’t posted it yet….had I?! I was shocked to realize it already got posted on a random Saturday at the beginning of September.   WHAT?! I never post on weekends.  And why is it just NOW getting comments?!?!?!?!  All I can figure is it was a scheduling mix up and I didn’t even notice it in time to quick pull it.  I hate when I do brainless stuff like that!   So here is the link: Broccoli and Cheese Twice Baked Potatoes go check ’em out, they are really yummy and perfect for fall! 

Moving on….

  I know this isn’t my first rodeo, but it seriously still AMAZES me when a 1-year-old little boy brings a little truck to the desk, rolls it back and forth and knows to make a “RRrrrrr-rrrrrr” noise. (with voice going up and down like gears shifting)  I’m telling you, this stuff is HARD WIRED into them! Sorta like stretching and tooting each morning!  🙂

Check out this little cutie….

    On to my FAVORITE dip:

  Oh man, I LIVED on this stuff when I was pregnant and super nauseous!  It sounded good when nothing else did.  I also loved it after baby was born, I’d make a batch of this and eat on it all week.  Usually while I nursed, again.  It had the protein, veggies and healthy fat we both needed, plus, I could eat it one-handed and not bloop on my sweet baby. It was a WIN WIN WIN! 🙂


Amazing 7 Layer Dip


  • 16 ounces, weight Refried Beans (+ 1/2 A Cup Of Salsa)
  • 3 whole Avocados (+lime Juice And Salt To Taste)
  • 8 ounces, weight Sour Cream (+1/2 Packet Of Taco Seasoning)
  • 2 cups Shredded Mexican Fiesta Cheese
  • 2 ounces Alfalfa Sprouts
  • Grape tomatoes 
  • Chips

Season 8 oz of sour cream with 1/2 a packet of taco seasoning, stirring well. Let sit in the fridge a while for flavors to meld.
Open canned refried beans, stirring in 1/2 cup or more of your favorite salsa, to make a softer, more dippable texture.
Spread into a 9×13 Pyrex dish.
Cube and mash avocados, stir in salt and lime juice to taste.
Spread on top of bean layer.
Next, spread seasoned sour cream, followed by shredded cheese, alfalfa sprouts then tomatoes on top.
Can be served immediately or covered and refrigerated for the next day.

Serve with your favorite chip.

This is SOOOOO flavorful, healthy and good! I was hesitant to do the sprouts on top, but seriously, you have to try it! They are really good, soo good for you, and taste a bit like lettuce I think.

  1. A very favorite recipe in our home…but I’ve never put sprouts on it. What a great idea! I make this often for birthday parties and get togethers…thanks for the reminder. Enjoy a delightful weekend. Boys will certainly be boys – amazing how they demonstrate that at a young age huh?

  2. You know, it IS my first rodeo with a boy and I was equally amazed and shocked the first time he pushed a car around the living room! The girls rarely (if ever!) do that and he did it so naturally. So crazy and fascinating at the same time!

  3. All three of my sons had all those sounds down and now even their sons do, it just goes on and on. It brings back some really good memories. We just love a seven layer dip and your recipe looks awesome. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful recipe with Full Plate Thursday. Hope you are having a great week end and come back soon!
