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.

Artichoke Dip


Mmmmm.  That good artichoke dip that people bring to parties. Ever wonder how to make some yourself?  Here’s a quick recipe:

  • 1 (6 oz.) jar marinated artichoke hearts
  • 2 Tbs. green chilies, diced
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Drain the artichokes, reserve the marinade.  Chop the artichokes.  Combine artichokes, chilies, mayonnaise and cheese in a small crock pot.  Cover and heat until the cheese is melted.  Stir to mix ingredients, then blend in 1 Tbs of reserved marinade.
