Double 7 Layer Dip

A favorite around our house.  Especially around the TV on game day.  We call it Double 7 Layer Dip because over the years the layers started piling up and we soon realized we had 14.


  • 1 lb. seasoned ground beef
  • 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans (seasoned with Taco Meat)
  • 1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 cups of your favorite salsa
  • 3 cups guacamole
  • 1/2 cup of Cilantro
  • 1/2 cup onion
  • 1/4 cup Jalapeños
  • 1/4 cup Serrano Chiles
  • 1 bunch chopped green onions
  • 1 (6 ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. Mix the sour cream and cream cheese in a medium bowl.
  2. Spread refried beans out in the bottom of a 9 x 13 Pan.
  3. Place a layer of the other ingredients over over the beans.

Guacamole Salsa

My Dad’s guacamole salsa is kinda famous in these parts.  He was inspired to create his own salsa after tasting a really good salsa at a local restaurant.  It has since closed but not before he convinced them to give him a list of ingredients.  For 5 years he tried different combinations of the ingredients, adding some of his own and finally created his perfect salsa.  One day when cleaning up, he decided to mix the left over salsa with some fresh guacamole that was on the counter.  Whamo!  His famous Guacamole Salsa was born!

To make the guacamole salsa hotter or milder, just change the amount of Jalapeños.


  • 12 Medium Roma Tomatoes, diced
  • 1 Large Yellow Onion, chopped
  • 1 bunch of Green Onion, chopped
  • 5 Serrano Peppers, chopped
  • 1 Pasilla Pepper, chopped
  • 1-3 Jalepeno Peppers, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of oregano
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 8 Avocado, mashed


  1. Combine all ingredients except the Avocado to make Salsa
  2. Slowly add the Salsa to the Avocado until the desired mix is achieved.
  3. Usually we have about 1/4 of the salsa left over for those who don’t like avocado.
  4. Serve with Tortilla Chips.

My dad always makes a side batch of his Guacamole Salsa extra hot.  He adds one chopped Habanero Pepper to the side mix.  Oh, its fun to see him cry.  🙂
