7 Layer Flag Dip for 4th of July!

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

We came up with this fun 7 Layer Flag Dip today & it’s SO easy to make! We are sure this would be a huge hit at any 4th of July party.

7 Layer Flag Dip

1 Can of Refried Beans
1 Packet of Taco Seasoning
1 8 oz of Sour Cream
1 8 oz of Cream Cheese
2 Cups of Shredded Cheese
1 Bag of Shredded Lettuce
Black Olives
1 Jar of Salsa
1 Large Tomato (chopped)
Blue Chips (we like the ones from World Market)
1 Slice of Provolone Cheese

Start out by mixing the can of refried beans with taco seasoning & spread in a 9×13 glass pan. Top with the jar of salsa. Then we topped with olives….

Top the olives with a bag of shredded lettuce. Then top with the shredded cheese…

Mix together the sour cream & cream cheese. Then spread on a square on the top left corner. Crush the blue chips & sprinkle them on the sour cream. It’s okay for some of the chips to get on the cheese because you will cover it up….

Spoon the sour cream mixture in a baggie & snip off the corner. Squeeze on 6 lines…then fill with the chopped tomatoes…

Cut out small circles from a slice of provolone cheese & place then on top of the crushed blue chips. We used a small icing tip to cut ours out. We love how this turned out & will definitely be making this to bring to our next July 4th party!

  2. SUPER cute!! And I love that it's not full of a bunch of food coloring. Great idea.

  3. Perfect appetizer for the 4th of July. The chips are so blue, I've never seen bright blue chips before. They really look great on the flag.

  4. This is PERFECT! I am so bringing this to the cookout on Saturday!

  10. Hi,
    It looks so nice. The colours are so natural! Great

  11. I literally think this is the best idea I have yet to see for the 4th of July. I am so making this. My sister always goes all out for food themed recipes – I have always giggled about it. But now with this recipe I will impress her. Thanks friend. Sharing on FB, pinned and yummed. Can’t wait! xo San

  12. Where can I get chips ? I went to our fresh market , the bags had blue chips on front of bag but were deep purple , went back to store manager opened 3 bags all same color , 1 hour until church picnic. Manager whipped up blue food coloring in some sour cream, best we could do . We have Whole Foods and Public . Thanks

  13. This is absolute genius! Love, love, love it. Wish I’d seen it earlier, but I’ll Pin it and wait for the 4th of July.

  14. I could not find the blue chips at World Market in Brookfield, WI. They said they had no such thing only the deep purple chips. Maybe it varys from state to state. Going to try the food coloring like Audrey suggested.

  15. Great work! Actually, I like your creativity. I will try to do on 4th July.

  16. Looks amazing!!!
