Simple 7-layer bean dip (+video)
This is our family’s favorite 7-layer bean dip recipe! It has many flavors and all your favorite dips, including avocado, olives, tomatoes, cheese, guacamole and more! This is a must-have appetizer for every family gathering.
The 7-layer bean paste is our classic bean paste recipe, but we also like to make cream cheese bean paste or black bean paste.
Family favorite layered bean paste
My family likes to get together to eat all the food, but Mexican food is our favorite. For main dishes like enchiladas and beef empanadas, we always have some delicious pairings, just like today’s 7-layer bean paste recipes.
This is one of the appetizers we always seem to eat when eating Mexican food…especially Cinco de Mayo.
This bean paste recipe is simple and easy to put together. Spread it on a large plate and serve many people. We think it is perfect for all those summer dinners and family gatherings or any Mexican meal.
7 layers of delicious
Why is it called seven-layer bean dip? Because when preparing this Tex-Mex appetizer, 7 layers are usually involved. These layers can be modified to your liking, but these are the layers we like to include:
- Fried bean paste or Frito’s Bean Dip
- Sour cream (we mix our sour cream with Taco seasoning to add flavor)
- Salsa or chopped tomatoes
- Grated cheese – Mexican mixed cheese or Monterey cheese is our favorite
- black olives
- Your favorite green vegetables-lettuce, onions, jalapenos or green peppers-are all delicious! !
Like any of our recipes, they can be customized to your liking. We make beans, guac, sour cream mixed with taco seasoning, chopped tomatoes, Mexican cheese, olives and onions. It is always very popular! !
How to make 7 layers of bean paste
It is easy to make this layered bean paste. Once you have selected the layers you want to include, prepare each layer on your plate. We start with beans. This can be made with your own beans, canned bean paste or even Frito’s Bean dip.
From there we added guacamole. We like to use our homemade guacamole, but you can also use store-bought guacamole. The next layer is sour cream (you can keep it yourself) or mixed with a packet of taco seasoning.
The top layer is all the ingredients you like-olives, chopped tomatoes, cheese, cilantro/scallions/chili/etc. It’s really easy.
What is the best fries to go with layered soy sauce? We tried various corn chips, our favorite potato chip is Juanita’s. They are light, airy and crispy! Another favorite we like is Tostino’s Cantina Thin and Crispy fries. Frito’s is also great.
Can the 7-layer bean paste be made in advance? We recommend refrigerating this bean paste for at least one hour before consumption. If covered, this soaking can be done up to 24 hours in advance. We just recommend waiting to add chopped tomatoes and vegetables (cilantro, green onions, etc.) before serving.
How long can the seven-layer bean paste be eaten? If covered properly, this bean paste can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours. The guac makes it harder to last longer, but this is definitely a dipping sauce you can enjoy the next day.
The interesting thing about this 7-layer bean paste is that you can add as many additional layers as you want. Avocado, corn, whatever ingredients you like in bean paste. Or, you can try to make our Loaded Nachos, which is almost this kind of bean paste, cooked with cheese nachos!
