7 Layer Dip for Mexican Fiesta #SundaySupper

Mexican 7 layer dip

Do you have a sombrero? No? Me either, but I wish I did this week so I could stick it on my head and be a bit more festive for this week’s #SundaySupper event. I’m so excited that Heather from girlichef  is hosting this week and her event centers around Día de Independencia, or Mexican Independence Day. What a fun event to celebrate – grab the salsa and chips and a big ‘ole Margarita (and that Sombrero I’m wishing I had) and we’re almost ready.

Wait, almost? Yes almost. Because when you see the amazing line up of recipes for this Mexican Fiesta event, you’ll understand that the food is an integral part. In fact, the whole #SundaySupper team has been taunting me for the past few days posting spoiler pics for some amazing recipes that are coming right up.

I chose an easy 7 Layer Dip for today because, well, who really doesn’t love a good layer dip? And besides, isn’t it pretty? I just like staring at it. It’s so inviting. It’s calling to me. In fact, I’m seriously wondering if we have any more chips left because … dude I’m suddenly hungry…

7 layer dip

I have a little confession – I already have a layer dip on my blog. It’s a 5 layer dip. It’s a 5 layer clean eating dip. So if you’re into clean eating, you’ll probably love it. It’s pretty great actually. But… it’s not as flavorful as the 7 Layer Dip. Oh, and the 7 Layer Dip? Totally NOT clean eating. Totally amazingly good though so don’t worry about that. And kinda not 7 layers technically because I totally use a delicious Pico De Gallo to combine the Tomatoes, Jalapenos and Onions. Yum!

    I see 7 layer dip all the time, except yours is better because you can actually see everything 😉 I don’t have a sombrero, and Murray is probably happy because you bet I would be taking his picture LOL

    This looks amazing and I laughed when you talked about the sombrero because I own 3 and I didn’t even think to pull one of therm out. But I’m still learning.

    Oh my gosh this is incredible. I must try this one out when I have my sis in law over. She loves these types of dips. Stunning and perfect for Sunday Supper.

    You are correct! Everybody loves a good layered dip. I love the colors and the layering of all flavors I love. I love Mexican food.

    I love that you chopped up the avocado instead of making guacamole with it. Just brings a new range of textures to the dip that you wouldn’t normally get! Plus, you’ve piled all the stuff I like on top and left what I didn’t (the beans) on the bottom! My type of dip!

    I have always drooled over this stuff & wondered how they make it. You make it seem so simple & your version is the best ! Maybe I’ll pick up courage to make this sometime soon :0)
