This 7 layer dip recipe is one that I have been making for so many years that I cannot even remember when I first discovered it. It has become one of my specially party appetizers and one that I am often requested to create.
There is always at least one function each year that I am asked (or should I say told) to bring this dip to. If I do not come through I discover there are a lot of upset people at the party looking to satisfy their craving for my dip.
The Dip (as we call it) is multi-functional and can be used with chips, breads, or virtually any variety of cracker. It's even good on its own.
Personally I prefer my dip with Ritz Crackers or Wheat Thins while my husband enjoys his with Veggie Thins. Perhaps you have something different that you would like to try it with. I'm sure it will taste great with just about anything. It is so good the seven layer dip is almost a meal in itself.
Here Are Your Seven Ingredients
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
...And This is the Seven Layer Dip Recipe
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 cup (block) of softened cream cheese
***Blend the first 3 ingredients together. Once the cream cheese is in smaller pieces you can use a hand mixer to help get rid of the chunks and make the base more smooth. Spread this onto the bottom of a cookie sheet or into a dish that doesn't have high sides.
***Now spread this next ingredient on top of the first layer.
1-2 small bottles of a seafood sauce (I use mild).
***Dice up the peppers and tomatoes (how many depends on how large you dice them and how many you would like to add to your recipe). Then sprinkle the diced vegetables over the last topping to create the next layer.
1-2 Green Peppers
***I grate my cheese on the fine part of the grater to make the cheese easier to scoop and for it to go farther and make it look like there is more on the dip.
Grated Cheese (I use marble, but you can use cheddar, mozza, you name it!)
***Spread the cheese on top of the peppers and tomatoes, and VOILA! You are done your masterpiece of a 7 layer dip!
