Seven Layer Dip

So I mentioned in a recent post that I was assigned to bring chips to a barbecue. Well here are my "chips" and dip. I couldn't just bring a boring bag of potato chips so I looked up a recipe for good old seven layer dip and changed it up a bit.
I've always loved seven layer dip, but haven't always loved every layer. So I chose the best ones!
{In my opinion of course.}

The cream cheese and taco seasoning mix in this recipe really give your standard seven layer dip an extra touch. So good!
Seven Layer Dip
Adapted from AllRecipes
1 (1.25 oz.) package taco seasoning mix {I used McCormick}
1 (16 oz.) can refried beans
 6 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 ½ cups sour cream
store-bought or homemade guacamole {so much better homemade}
2 cans (10 oz each) Rotel original diced tomatoes and green chilies, drained
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4-1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 bags of your favorite tortilla chips


1. In a medium bowl, blend the taco seasoning mix and refried beans. Spread the mixture onto the bottom of a lightly greased 11x13 baking dish using a spatula.
2. Spread homemade or store-bought guacamole over the beans.
3. Mix the sour cream and cream cheese in a medium bowl. Spread over the guacamole.
4. Top the layers with the Rotel tomatoes and green chilies, cheddar cheese and cilantro.
5. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Serve with tortilla chips.
