Kitchen Originals: Mom’s Seven Layer Dip

Mint: Seven Layer Dip

Don’t be fooled. Not all seven layer dips are created equal. I learned this after trying some at a party. It wasn’t prepared by my mom. Sure, it was still good. But not this good. Mom’s secret—adding taco seasoning to the sour cream. Forget the game, Mom’s dip is what the Super Bowl’s all about. Had I not been watching Ellen yesterday, I wouldn’t even know the two teams at bat. The Super Bowl is baseball, right?

Only kidding.

Mint: Seven Layer Dip

Mom’s Seven Layer Super Bowl Dip

2  (2 oz.) packs of guacamole dip
8 oz. sour cream
1 (1 oz.) package of taco seasoning
2 (10 oz.) cans of Rotel tomatoes with green chilies, drained
1 (2.25 oz.) can of sliced olives, drained and chopped
2 bunches of green onions, chopped
1 (8 oz.) pack of shredded cheddar cheese

1. Mix together sour cream and taco seasoning. Set aside.
2. In a 9″ x 13″ pan, layer ingredients starting with the refried beans and ending with cheese.

    We make it the same here but just use our favourite salsa instead of rotel tomatoes. We don’t have those in Canada I don’t think. I am assuming they are just canned tomatoes.
