This weekend is huge in the football world. Wild Card games Saturday (AFC) and Sunday (NFC). NCAA Championship on Monday.

It’s a great time to be a football fan, especially for the tailgating food.

I get massive cravings for all foods associated with Super Bowl parties as soon as the clock strikes 12:00AM on January 1st every year.

Luckily, we don’t have to wait until February to enjoy chips, dip, and all the other glorious snacks.

7 layer dip is probably at the top of my list of pre-game appetizers.

Side note: The other thing that comes to mind this time of year is the infamous Jim Mora line comes to mind – “Playoffs?” (See this article from ESPN if you are unfamiliar with the quote.) It’s difficult to articulate exactly how much joy that line and his disgusted face give me. Thank you Coors Light for introducing me to it (See it for yourself on bleacher report).

First come the beans.

Then the sour cream.

Then, one of the best-tasting green foods known to man, guacamole!

I made this myself, but I have used store-bought, namely the Wholly brand.

Salsa.

Again, this is homemade (check out my recipe), but Pace or Herdez would be excellent replacements.

Shredded cheddar cheese. Mmmmm. My tummy is a-rumbling!

Last touch: olives.

And there she is!

What a wondrous sight!

Another angle on the multi-layered masterpiece.

For those of you keeping track, you will have noticed that there are technically only six layers in this seven layer dip.

Well spotted, you! See the note below.

Easy, Dreamy 7 Layer Dip

Ingredients

  • 1 can (16 oz) refried beans*
  • 1-2 cup sour cream
  • 1-2 cup guacamole
  • 1-2 cup salsa
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 10 olives, sliced

Instructions

  1. Heat up the beans on the stove or in the microwave. (Beans will be easier to spread when warm- not necessarily hot.)
  2. Add the sour cream, guac, salsa, cheese and olives in the order pictured, or however you want to!
  3. Dive into the divine dip with tortilla chips of your choice.

Notes

*Rosarita refried beans are my fav. The vegetarian kind actually taste better in my opinion that the traditional. I also like the green chile & lime and the zesty salsa varieties. Yummy.

Quantities of all ingredients can be varied specifically to your taste. I don't care for raw tomatoes, so I just put pico de gallo as a layer. Therefore, this dip technically only has six layers. Yet I insist on calling it Seven Layer Dip. So yeah. Just do you!

As for the football, I’m picking Chiefs, Steelers (Sorry, Bengals- I want to root for you, but Andy’s out), Vikings, and Redskins. But all I really care about is my Cardinals. We did well this season so we don’t have to play until January 16th. Yessssss.

I’m super torn about the NCAA Championship. Bama and Clemson are both among my favorite college football teams (mostly because I like their coaches and their work ethic). I guess I’m gonna have to root for Clemson because even though they are ranked first, I think they are still somehow underdogs. It should be a fantastic game!

BYOG!
