This gluten free 7 layer dip is made with salsa, refried beans, cream cheese, sour cream, taco seasoning, guacamole, shredded cheese and green onion.
This is one of the easiest appetizers to make to feed a big group of people. The best part is you can prepare it ahead of time and keep it chilled in the refrigerator until it is time to use it. There are layers of creamy and fresh ingredients that come together seamlessly. Lat time I made it, everyone was crowding around the dip. This dip is perfect for gamedays as well. You can choose to making your own guacamole and salsa, or buy store bought ingredients.
- Refried beans
- Cream cheese

- Salsa: You can choose a variety of salsas for this. You can get as creative as you want. You can choose to making your own salsa or buy store bought salsa, either works. I have made this using salsa verde, and it was amazing.
- Refried beans: You can buy refried beans from the can, or buy a can of pinto beans, simmer in some oil, and mash them yourself.
- Cream cheese: I used plain cream cheese, although I hear jalapeno or scallion cream cheese works wonders.
- Guacamole: You can make your own guacamole or buy guacamole.
- Cheese: I used Mexican blend shredded cheese, but you can use Pepper Jack, Monterrey or Mozzarella cheese.

Equipment can have a big impact on how a recipe turns out. Stone bakeware takes longer to heat up than metal pans, and also retain heat for longer, which could make the recipe more watery, or burnt on the outsides.
