7-Layer Bean Dips!

These were a huge hit for Daniels 30th Birthday Party!

 Lay your cups out..
 layer them (I doubled the recipe to make more than 8 for the party) I did some fully loaded, some half loaded and some with just beans, guac, cheese!

Pinned these from The Girl Who Ate Everything

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. ( I doubled this recipe)
1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning (I would use 2 of these 1 for beans and 1 for sour cream)
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. I didn't mix the taco seasoning in the sour cream this time, but next time I would mix another packet of taco seasoning with the sour cream, I think it would add a little more something! 

Here's how the layers are assembled:
Layer 1: beans and taco seasoning
Layer 2: guacamole
Layer 3: sour cream
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 guacamole, 2 Tablespoons of sour cream, 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.
