Seven Layer Taco Dip is creamy, savory & yummy! This recipe is definitely not your Grandma’s Layered Chip Dip. While it is still a dish full of classic Tex-Mex flavors we do have a few surprises up our sleeves making this the perfect Super Bowl weekend snack.
Stand Out from the Crowd
What makes this party favorite stand out from a sea of other delicious appetizers is the fresh deli pico de gallo and smooth Fritos bean dip base. Each add a truly unique set of flavors you didn’t know you were missing with the traditional refried beans and diced tomatoes most recipes call for.
We believe upgrading these two basic layers really does put this dish over the top! This appetizer is a seven layer dip everyone will crave. A dip perfect for game day, the Super Bowl, parties and snacking. Truly a chip and dip match, made in heaven.
Make It Your Own
Just because this dish has well known flavors doesn’t mean it isn’t customizable. You can give those enjoying it a sense of your own unique flair by when you make this dish your own! Don’t hesitate to swap out any of the layers in this recipe for your go-to taco fillings and toppings. If you can enjoy it in or on a taco it is gonna go great with these other flavors. You can even get crazy with it all and add a layer or two! No one ever said Seven Layer Taco Dip could only have seven layers. Break the rules!
Here are a handful of our favorites we know would go so well in this dish.
- Seasoned Beef
- Queso Fresco
- Mango Salsa
- Cream Cheese
- Green Chilies
Serve & Enjoy 100 Different Ways
Keep in mind that in addition to what you choose for each delicious layer there are several other ways to enhance your Seven Layer Taco Dip experience. In this case, how you display your dip and what you choose to serve it with can make all the difference.

Pro Chef – Mom Hacks
Store leftovers for 3-4 days in the fridge covered tightly. Keep in mind the avocado layer may start to brown. After 24 hours your dip will not look as pretty but I can guarantee it is going to taste sooooo good! If there are any extra juices or liquids just drain off and enjoy!
