ARE YOU READY FOR SOME....Seven Layer Dip?!?!?!


That's right kids, it's Sunday and in the Fall, Sundays mean one thing- FOOTBALL!!! I thought I'd feature a football favorite recipe each Sunday during football season to help out all of us who get perplexed by what to bring to the game day party. For today, I figured we'd go with a time honored classic and nothing says classic game day fare like 7 Layer Dip. I found this one on allrecipes.com and altered it just slightly by adding ground beef and omitting the lettuce it called for (it wilts...ewww) I think its a fairly standard rendition with spicy ground beef, beans, sour cream, cheese and veggies. Its everything a sports fan is looking for all layered into on delicious dish. So put on your favorite jersey, grab a chip and dig in!

Ingredients
1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
1 lb lean ground beef
1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
1 (16 ounce) jar salsa
1 large tomato, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 bunch chopped green onions
1 (6 ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
tortilla chips
  1. In a large skillet, brown ground beef, drain off grease and add back to pan. Add taco seasoning and water and cook until meat is coated. Set aside and let cool.
  2.  In a large tray (I like to use a disposable aluminum for easy clean up) add ground beef and top with refried beans.
  3. Mix the sour cream and cream cheese in a medium bowl. Spread over the refried beans.
  4. Top the layers with salsa. Place a layer of tomato, green bell pepper, and green onions over the salsa, and top with Cheddar cheese. Garnish with black olives. 
  5. Serve with tortilla chips.  
  6. CHOW!
