Individual Seven-Layer Dips
Individual Seven-Layer Dips are individually portioned Mexican appetizer dips perfect for parties, BBQs, potlucks, and get togethers. These are definitely a memorable appetizer that will have people raving. Unlike the traditional 7-layer bean dip, there’s no double dipping here!
Individual Seven-Layer Dips
We keep it pretty minimal when it comes to toys for our kids on Christmas but yet somehow I feel like there’s STUFF everywhere! Anyone else feel this way?
We’re swimming in Legos over here and just when I think I’ve cleaned up the last of them, I’ll step on one or one of my boys will drop their ships and Lego pieces go flying everywhere.
I think my husband spent 6 straight hours on Christmas helping them build Legos.
Seven layer dip is one of my favorites. But after a few people have dipped (hopefully not double-dipped), it starts to look like mush.
All the pretty layers turn into an unidentifiable, unappetizing pile.
My sister told me about the idea of individual seven layer dips as a party idea.
The great thing about seven layer dip is that you can adjust it to your personal tastes.
Now, you could make these in glass tumblers too, but we are pretty casual over here so plastic tumblers are the way we roll.

- 2 Roma tomatoes, , diced
- 1/2 bunch of green onions, , sliced
- 1 (2.25 ounce) can of sliced olives, drained
- 8 (9 ounce) plastic tumblers
- tortilla chips
- In a small bowl mix taco seasoning with refried beans. Some people prefer to mix their taco seasoning with the sour cream layer but I wanted a bright white layer so I did it with the beans.
- Here's how the layers are assembled:
- Layer 1: beans and taco seasoning; Layer 2: sour cream; Layer 3: guacamole; Layer 4: salsa or pico de gallo; Layer 5: cheese; Layer 6: tomatoes; Layer 7: green onions and olives
- In each plastic glass, layer about 2 Tablespoons of the beans, followed by 2 Tablespoons of sour cream, 2 Tablespoons of guacamole, 2 Tablespoons of salsa or pico de gallo, and 2 Tablespoons of cheese. Make sure you drain your salsa or pico to get the excess liquid out before you pour it on. Then top with about 1-2 teaspoons of tomatoes, olives, and green onion (If making ahead of time, wait to add these toppings until shortly before serving).
- Garnish with one tortilla chip. Store in the refrigerator until serving and serve with chips. Makes around 8 individual dips.
It makes it easier to place the wet ingredients like sour cream and guacamole in a Ziploc bag and snip of the corner for easy piping.
Note: All measurements are approximate. Depending on whether you want thicker or thinner layers you will need more or less.
