This seven layer dip is the perfect blend of textures, flavors, and temperatures. Warm and creamy refried beans serve as the base, which sits below a tangy layer of sour cream and cheese that’s topped with chunky salsa. Choose mild, medium, or hot based on your preference. These layers are cooked until hot and then topped with cool guacamole and finished with an irresistible layer of crunchy Frito’s and gooey, melted cheddar. By now you may have noticed that this dip doesn’t even have seven layers, but hopefully you’ll overlook this oversight based on how delicious it is!
