Mexican Layer Dip-this easy 7 Layer Mexican dip is perfect for game day, parties, or every day snacking! 

Mexican Layer Dip

My family has always been way into sports. Like yell at the TV, get a stomach ache when your team is losing, occasionally throw things in the room, and party like it’s 1999 when your team wins into sports. Yeah, we are kind of crazy like that. Josh and I are carrying on the crazy sports tradition. We love watching sports, especially on big game days! We usually cheer for the same team and when we don’t, you can feel the tension in the room. It is all in good fun:)

Good food is a must when a game is on. We love inviting people over to watch with us…some don’t come back because they realize we are a little nuts, but most do because we always have good food:) One of our favorite game day snacks is Mexican Layer Dip…or 7 Layer Dip. I think our dip has more than 7 layers. I lost count so I just call it Mexican Layer Dip. It is good no matter what you want to call it!

Most Mexican layered dips have sour cream involved, but I am not a sour cream fan so I make my favorite Creamy Avocado Yogurt Dip and spread it over the refried beans. It makes the dip extra special. You can’t go wrong with avocado! If you are a die hard sour cream fan, you can add a layer of sour cream too, but I don’t think it needs it. We never get complaints:)

We like to use Old El Paso’s Refried Black Beans. They are all kinds of awesome! We also stir in a little of Old El Paso’s Taco Seasoning into the Creamy Avocado Yogurt Dip to give the dip a kick of flavor. It is a must in 7 Layer Dip!

We go all out when it comes to the toppings. We add shredded Cheddar cheese, queso fresco, green onions, tomatoes, black olives, and cilantro!

  1. Last weekend was so exciting. Of all the dips this is my favorite. I could eat the whole bowl. I always feel bad when I ruin the perfect layer look. Yours is gorgeous!

  2. I’ve been looking for some great dip ideas for the big game coming up! I love the idea of a creamy avocado yogurt dip as an alternative to sour cream. I think when I make it I’ll make a creamy avocado sour cream mixture (I just can’t seem to say no to that stuff!).

  3. I’m a huge mexican layer dip fan and I’d so much rather make it myself then always buying it. More fun that way 🙂 Pinned this recipe!

  4. Mexican layer dip is one of our favorites…love the addition of the avocado dip instead of just plain sour cream…yummy!

  5. I love avocado + yogurt but don’t make layered dips like this nearly enough. I could eat this plate for dinner!

  6. Mexican layer dips are the absolute best game-watching food! That, and nachos…which are practically related 🙂

  7. Delicious, love the Avocado touch (I am on a total Avocado kick right now) and that you can make this one ahead of time…and have it as a meal 😉

  8. Thank you! I made this yesterday and it was a big hit! Delicious. I also made your chocolate chip cookies bars and they were the bomb. Love so many of your recipes!
