Not Quite 7 Layers Dip

Our Not Quite 7 Layers Dip is truly one of the cheap and easy-to-make creations that has been in our house for years.  We have seen a loud and rowdy group of girls become silenced by the need to consume this dip.  On multiple occasions it has been demolished in under five minutes.  Now you might be thinking "where's the guacamole?" Sadly ours does not contain guacamole (multiple people in our house are allergic to avocados) but if you want some just add it in as another layer.

You must be wondering how much does this bad boy cost?  Well by the time you add in the cost of the chips it's near $8.  We call that a deal.    

Start this masterpiece with some refried beans, sour cream, cheese, tomato, and olives.

Find a 9 X 13 or roughly near that size pan to put the dip in.  Start with a layer of beans.  We love this and so we buy the large container of beans (as seen in the picture above).

Next take a 13 oz. container of sour cream and dump the entire container on the beans.  Even out with a spatula.

Notice it doesn't have to be perfect, it's going to be eaten way to fast.

Grate approximately 1 cup of cheddar cheese and place on the sour cream layer.

Dice 1-2 tomatoes and open/drain 1 small can of olives.

In case you don't like olives hold them, half of our dip only has tomatoes (yes we have picky eaters in the family).

Sprinkle on the tomatoes and olives.

Cinco de Mayo may be over now, but the fiesta can live on via this dip! Olé!
