LSL {Foodie Friday} - Individual Seven-Layer Dips

The big game is this Sunday and even though I am not a huge football fan I will be cheering, loudly, for my home team Niners to a (very hopeful) victory this Sunday. Along with the cheering and how excited everyone seems to get (like they are actually playing in the game as opposed to just watching and supporting from afar) I think my favorite part of football Sundays is the food. You know, next to the commercials come Superbowl Sunday.  

This foodie Friday is a great twist on a dip classic. I love seven layer dip as much as the next girl and seem to have a little bit of an issue of knowing when to stop shoving it in my face. So, when I saw this recipe on Pinterest and was completely intrigued. Individual Seven-Layer Dips? Yes, please. 

Individual Seven-Layer Dips
Makes about 8 individual dips

*Note: All measurements are approximate. Depending on whether you want thicker or thinner layers you will need more or less.

1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning
1 cup guacamole or make homemade guacamole
1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
1 cup chunky salsa or pico de gallo; or make homemade pico de gallo
1 cup shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 bunch of green onions, sliced
1 (2.25 ounce) can of sliced olives, drained
9 ounce plastic tumblers
tortilla chips

In a small bowl mix taco seasoning with refried 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.
