Seven Layer Bean Dip Recipe

Tackle-Worthy 7-Layer Dip

What happens when you pack beans, cheese, guacamole, sour cream, tomatoes, green onions, and black olives into a casserole dish? You get a seven-layer dip that will send football fans tackling each other to scoop their chips first. It's a snap to make, and partygoers will probably devour it in a matter of minutes, as in before the first quarter ends.

We recommend splitting the dip into two smaller dishes, so you can spread the joy among the couch and intercept unnecessary rough play between your guests. Trust me: people will get territorial about seven-layer dip.
