7 Layer Taco Dip
What You Need:
- 1 can chili (Feel free to use homemade chili, about 1 1/2 cups, you could also use Easy Refried Beans)
- 1 8-oz bar cream cheese
- 2 roma tomatoes, diced finely
- 3/4 cup shredded lettuce (any kind is fine, I used romaine because that’s what I had on hand)
- 1 1/2 cups sour cream
- 1 cup shredded cheese – any kind works, but cheddar or colby jack are probably best
- 1/4 cup olives, diced
Here’s what to do:
In a medium glass bowl, add the cream cheese and the chili. Heat in the microwave about 1 minute until you are able to mix it easily. Using a spoon, mix the cream cheese and chili together thoroughly.
Add cream cheese/chili mixture to the bottom of an 8×8″ glass pan. Smooth it out so it is somewhat level.
Add the layer of shredded lettuce.
Add the layer of diced tomatoes.
Smooth the sour cream over the tomatoes. I use a bent icing knife to do this.
Sprinkle the cheese over the top and dot it with the diced olives.
If you can’t wait, by all means, dig in right away, I promise it will be delicious.
But if you can wait for 10 minutes, stick it in the oven at 350 and get that cheese all melty and delightful.
