7 layer yumminess!

H A P P Y  C I N C O  D E  M A Y O

i really wish y’all could hear me say that…i’m the whitest mexican ever!
given the festive holiday and the great food that comes with it, i thought i would make a 7 layer dip to take to a neighborhood party we’re going to.
but instead of doing a huge dish i wanted to do individuals because if you’re like me, you love to double dip.


what you’ll need:
9 oz clear plastic cups
piping bags
refried beans
2 avocados, 1 tomato, 1/3 cup cilantro, 2 tbsp lime juice,
1/4 cup onion, 1/2-1 jalepeno, salt
sour cream
shredded monterrey jack cheese
diced tomatoes
green onions

IMG_5805 i only used 9 cups. if you do make more be sure to up your quantities on each ingredient.

IMG_5806 {step one} scoop some refried beans into a piping bag, snip the end off {big enough for chunks of beans to get through} and pipe it into the cups.

IMG_5807 each one should be filled about an inch high.

wait! make the guacamole!!!

IMG_5808 mash those acovados {yes that was intentional}

IMG_5809 dice them tomatoes and toss em in.

IMG_5811 finely chop the cilantro. toss it in!

IMG_5812 dice the jalepenos…make sure to use a glove if you’re a big baby like me!

IMG_5815 dice those tear jerking onions…have some goggles? use them.

IMG_5814 add some salt… not too much, just a pinch!
now mix mix mix

back to the dip!

IMG_5816 pipe some guac into the bag and pipe it onto the refried beans.

IMG_5817 remember only an inch.

IMG_5818 scoop some sour cream into a bag and pipe that in on top of the guac…

IMG_5819 how much? oh just an inch.

 now for the salsa…this was a disaster. i would NOT recommend using the piping bag…just spoon it in there.

IMG_5823 so festive!

IMG_5824 add the cheese, chop some tomatoes & green onions thennnn…

IMG_5827 add some kind of festiveness and you got yourself some awesome treats to take to a cinco de mayo party!

have a fun and safe cinco de mayo everyone!!

  1. Looks FABULOUS’O (lol) Jess,
    I’ve done those before too and they are a perfect hit and the perfect serving size. I made spanish rice & chicken casserole for our group/office celebration – but I will admit I CHEATED and had MOM make the homemade flour tortillas. Sad to say but I have NOT mastered those and will be sad when I realize that I can’t duplicate them!

    1. Fabuloso just remind me of that cleaner that my mom and grandma used to use ALL THE TIME! lol and i feel ya, my mom makes the best Arroz con Pollo and THE BEST rice.
