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…
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!
- 1 can of refried beans
- 1 cup of Pico De Gallo
- 3 avocados, diced
- 1 16 ounce container of sour cream
- 1 packet of taco seasoning mix
- 1 cup of shredded Mexican blend cheese
- 1 can of black olives, sliced
- Select a thin dish (pie plates work perfectly).
- Pour the taco seasoning mix into the sour cream and blend well.
- Layer the ingredients in the bottom of the pie plate in the order they appear in the recipe.
- If you double or triple the recipe, you can use a big trifle bowl like I did.
- Serve & Enjoy!
