7 Layer Dip


7 Layer dip is a family favorite for football games, so I made a big bowl for us to snack on during the Ohio State Game. It may not look pretty, but it tastes great! There are a million ways to make 7 layers, but this is my favorite...


7 Layer Dip

1 brick of lowfat cream cheese, softened
2 c. thick salsa
1 28 oz. can vegetarian refried beans
2 c. guacamole
1 sack of shredded iceberg lettuce
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c. light sour cream
1/2 c. salsa or pico de gallo
Optional: Chopped jalapenos, olives, or red onion

In a bowl, mix cream cheese and salsa. Spread into the bottom of a clear, deep dish.
Spread beans over cream cheese layer.
Make guacamole, spread over beans.
Top with lettuce, cheese, sour cream, salsa, and other toppings.
Serve with tortilla chips.


Guacamole:
4 haas avocados
2 lime, juiced
2 tsp. salt
3 garlic cloves
1 tsp. ground cumin


Chop the garlic and sprinkle with salt, paste it together. Dice the avocado, add to a bowl, squeeze lime juice over, add garlic paste and cumin, stir and cover with plastic to keep from browning.
