This 7 layer dip is always one of the first dishes gone at parties. It’s very easy to make and tastes so delicious. There are many variations of this Mexican dip, but this is personally my favorite version. If you prefer to use homemade pico de gallo instead of salsa, you can find the recipe to my pico de gallo here on the blog.

3. I used a trifle bowl, but any 9×13 dish will work just fine. The layers will be a little thinner if you use a 9×13 dish.  In a dish, begin layering each layer starting with the refried beans, sour cream mixture, guacamole, Pico de gallo, shredded cheddar, and a handful of sliced olives. I topped mine with a little bit of green onion for color.
