7 LAYER DIP Cups {{individual}} - Great Party Food Idea!

I made these this morning for a Super Bowl party today but they would be great for any get together. 

I labeled it 7 layers but I think they are really six. I've seen these all over pinterest and if you count each garnish as a topping these are actually an EIGHT layer dip! Oooooh Ahhhhh. 

I mixed the beans and taco seasoning and made the guacamole

cut the tomatoes, olives, and jalapenos

I bagged the guacamole, beans, sour cream and salsa in ziplock bags. I wanted to make it as easy as possible to assemble and make sure each layer was perfect. Plus I figured less mess. 

Cut the corner and squeeze! Easy peasy!

I used 9oz plastic cups found at HEB.

I did all the cups at once completing nine before I ran out of guacamole. I would say use one more avocado and it will probably make 12 cups.

I think these would be good with a layer of taco meat too. Might try that next time.

I love how they turned out!

After taste testing I would suggest serving these with a spoon. Scoop-able chips aren't long enough and regular tostitos aren't strong enough so you end up eating a mouth full of sour cream, salsa and cheese. If you had spoons you could get all the layers at once and put it on the chip. Tried it and worked out perfect.

  1. What size plastic cups do you use for the 7 layer dip cups?

    1. Sorry, I didn't see your comment until today. They are 9oz cups. I'm updating the post with that information. Thank you for catching that. Unfortunately, I made the cups years ago and only for this post. I'm not sure how many it will make. I made 7 and had a lot left over. I would guess at least 14 to 20.

  2. It doesn't say how much of anything to use. Also I see you have mccormicks guacamole. I've never seen it. Do you just mix it with avocados? Thank you.

    1. Yes, just add avocado. You can use any guacamole mix. Unfortunately, I made the cups years ago and not sure on measurements. I bagged 16oz sour cream, made guacamole mix with 2 medium avocados, one can of refried beans mixed with taco seasoning, and one jar of salsa. Layered and topped with cheese, tomatoes, olives, and jalapenos. Hope that helps.
