Individual 7 Layer Bean Dips

Individual 7 Layer Bean Dips

On occasion, I’ve been known to make 7 layer dip for dinner. That’s just how much I love the stuff. It’s been a long time family favorite so when I saw these individual servings from The Girl Who Ate Everything I knew I’d have to try it (and I saw those three years ago and I still haven’t forgotten about them, genius idea for sure). Good bye messy scooping and double dippers!

Their perfect individual serving size makes these perfect for a party and this recipe could easily be doubled. You can also adjust it to suit your taste, like for me personally I prefer it without the salsa because that’s they way my family has always made 7 Layer Bean Dip. I just like to focus on the fresh tomatoes and feel the salsa isn’t needed but that’s just me. Make them how you like and enjoy!
