I love 7 layer dip, but it can get a little messy very quick. One or two scoops into it and it just isn’t looking very pretty anymore. A smart solution is making them into individual serving cups. This way everyone has their own container, you don’t have to scoop it out onto a plate and no one double dips!

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • Refried Beans
  • Taco Seasoning
  • Guacamole
  • Sour Cream
  • Salsa
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Tomatoes
  • Black Olives

How To Make 7 Layer Dip

Grab some clear 9oz party cups. You can usually find these at your local grocery store.

Stir together refried beans with taco seasoning and transfer the beans to a piping bag (or a large Ziploc). Snip about 1 inch from the end of the piping bag and squeeze into the bottom of the clear party cups. 

Next, do the same with the guacamole, putting it into a bag, cutting the end off, and squeezing into the cup.

Then do the sour cream, then the salsa in the same way.

Finally add your garnish, tomatoes, black olives and cheese.

You can make this a quick 5 layer dip (instead of 7) by just leaving out the tomatoes and black olives. It’s really good that way, too.

Serve these with tortilla chips and enjoy!

Can You Make 7 Layer Dip The Night Before?

Absolutely, so long as you have lids for the containers. With any layered dip, each layer will start to run over time, so it may not look as pretty on day 3 as it did on day 1. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t still taste great, it just looks a bit different.

How Long Does 7 Layer Dip Last?

You can keep these covered and in the fridge for about 3-4 days.
