My Turn for us: Seven Layer Dip

Seven Layer Dip


I love football!!   I didn't grow up watching football. 
 My Fellow did, he's been a Dallas Cowboy Fan all his life. 
 But I love throwing parties and entertaining and since Super Bowl is just the perfect excuse for a party, I have thrown a lot of Super Bowl parties. 
During the 90's Dallas was in the Super Bowl 3 times 1993, 1994 and 1996 and I threw Super Bowl parties every time and somewhere in the party atmosphere, I discovered football and loved it and became a huge Dallas Cowboy Fan (who could not enjoy those silver pants!!)  Of course it helped because Dallas won all three games.  
 So Super Bowl is a special time for me and it's almost a holiday in our house (maybe I will live long enough for Dallas to be in another one:).  
 I have almost an entire recipe box just for Super Bowl and I thought for this week I would share a few with you! 

 First Up DIP! 
  There is always a Dip for Super Bowl (and sometimes we invited him to our house, Lol).  Seriously the king of Dips is the Seven Layer Dip. It's so yummy and so pretty and there is always plenty for everyone.

Seven Layer Dip


Ingredients
  • 1 large can of refried beans
  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1 lime, juiced

  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 small can of sliced black olives

2. Peel and smash avocados in a small bowl, add juice from one lime, and just a sprinkle of salt and spread mixture evenly over beans
3. Mix sour cream, mayonnaise and taco seasoning in a mixing bowl, blend well, spread sour cream mixture evenly over avocados.

  3. Looks great! Pinned :-) {may I just ask - how long is a match?} I have never watched one as it is not big in South-Africa. We have Rugby which is 40 minutes on each half and normally we watch till halftime, then light the braai {BBQ} and after the game the party begins!

  42. I am a HUGE Cowboys fan! I lived in Dallas during the 90's Super Bowls and became a fan when my dad took me to see the Cowboys play. I got to see the triplets play!!! This dip looks so yummy and seven layer dip has been a favorite of mine since I was little but I've never made one. I think it's about time. :) Thanks for sharing over at Real Housemoms for Fabulous Fridays!
