This is my Grandma Valma's recipe that I bring to any holiday/party/shower or gathering, and it is always gone well before anything else. I have friends and relatives call and request that I bring this because they have been craving it since the last party. This is incredibly easy, but the mix of ingredients make this such an awesome appetizer. It may not actually be 7 layers, but that's what Grandma called it so I never argued! I have found that ridged or wavy potato chips are the best to go with this dip. Enjoy!!!

This was well received with the Sunday football crowd. I didn't use the bean sprouts as they are nearly impossible to find around here these days. (Something about re-calls etc...) Oh well, it was great without them. I guess I could have added some shredded romaine. Thanks for a very pretty dip. Read More

So easy to make and so good! Can't get bean sprouts so added lettuce instead. The first two layers just make it!! I will definitely make this again and again! Read More

I made this for an appetizer potluck. It was delicious. The only changes I made were to add some spices to the refried bean/avocado mix (cumin chili powder) and instead of bean sprouts on top I used sliced black olives. I didn t have any bean sprouts. The avocado in the beans was delicious. Read More

I made this for a recent gathering, and it was a hit! The dip was completely finished by the end of the evening. The only alteration I made was using the entire package of the seasoning, because I didn’t realize until it was too late that I should have only used half. Read More
