This 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.

Making fun and festive treats for holidays is one of my favorite things to do. When it’s something that looks incredible but is actually quite easy to make – that is my favorite! This Red White and Blue Bundt Cake and our Patriotic Poke Cake are great examples.

Are you going to any fun BBQ’s for Independence Day? If you are, you’re totally going to want to make this dip.

It’s one of those dishes you bring in and everyone gushes over. Everybody there will be asking you how you made it.

Not only does it look awesome and just like the American flag, it tastes so delicious.

Making Your Flag Dip

To make this great dip, you’ll layer all your favorite Mexican 7 layer dip ingredients like beans, salsa, cheese and lettuce.

Then, you get to the fun part. Making the flag!

The stripes are made out of a cream cheese and sour cream mixture and diced tomatoes.

The blue part of the flag, is actually crushed chips! And guess what the little circle for stars is? Cheese!

If it looks intricate and tricky it isn’t: because to make those tiny dots, use an icing tip upside down and use it as a little mini cookie cutter.

We love how this turned out & will definitely be making this to bring to our next July 4th party!

  • Ingredients:
  • 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


  • Directions:
  • Mix the can of refried beans with taco seasoning
  • Spread on the bottom of a 9x13 glass pan
  • Add your can of salsa as the next layer
  • Sprinkle your olives on top
  • Then your bag of lettuce
  • Next is your bag of shredded cheese

For the square of the flag at the top left corner

  • Mix the sour cream and cream cheese together
  • Spread half of your mixtureit into the shape of a square in the corner
  • Crush your blue chips
  • Sprinkle the chips over the square
  • Cut out small circles from a slice of provolone cheese & place then on top of the crushed blue chips. (We used the end of a small icing tip to cut ours out.)

For the rest of the flag

  • Spoon the remaining sour cream mixture in a baggie & snip off the corner.
  • Squeeze out 6 lines across the shredded cheese layer to make the white stripes of the flag.
  • Sprinkle your diced tomatoes in between the white stripes to make the red ones.

Absolutely adorable! Happy 4th of July Week-have fun with the kids:@)

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

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.

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

I love it, but it's quite difficult to implement.

Wow, looks very nice, I like it very much, thanks

Very good and interest,such a good idea to do it,thanks

It looks great! I must try it for my family. Good idea.thanks

It looks very nice.I think it is difficult to make it .I must try this even it will be not so nice like yours.

It looks so nice. The colours are so natural! Great

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

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

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.

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.

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

Looks amazing!!!

need to pin to Pinterest.

love your recipes

Love it

What a great idea for the flag dip!!
