I like a good dip

We went to a party last weekend and I made one of my favorite recipes. A dip that is fast, easy, no cooking involved, and it can feed a lot of people.

What you don't see in these pictures are lots of little fingers trying to get at this. Taking a picture of a pan of dip was harder than I thought it would be.
I made it the day before because it is even better if it sits over night.

Seven Layer Dip:
1 can of refried beans
Guacamole (you can make your own, or buy the kind in the deli section)
Sour cream- about half a tub
Fresh Salsa -1 container
Grated cheddar cheese- about two cups
Olives- 2 small cans
1 bunch of scallions
Just layer all ingredients starting with the beans, ending with the scallions in a 9x13 baking pan. Serve with corn chips.
One question though, are you a dipper or a scooper?

A scooper! YUM! My mother and grandmother have a very similar recipe (it may actually be the same). Reading the list of ingredients immediately made me think of summer bbq's in my home town!

this looks delicious, and i would love to try making some, but have never heard of re-fried beans...I am sure we have something similar, if you could explain what they are...definately a scooper with a dip like that!

The dip looks scrumptious!
I'm a scooper if the dip is chunky, but most of the time will dip.

Both! It depends on the type of dip.

With this dip I'd be a scooper.

Salsa mixed with cream cheese
I'd be a dipper. Especially if
I was sharing it. lol!

Never a double dipper, though!
Especially if I was sharing it.lol!

This looks so yummy!

God Bless You and Yours!!!
