Homegating 7 Layer Dip

Football season is upon us, which means it’s time to start preparing for game day and start making those fun homegating memories. Our family loves fall football homegating, and there’s no better way to celebrate than having your closest friends and family over for the big game, enjoying delicious food. My layered dip recipe is a staple for game day and I’m so excited to share it with all of you.

Game Day 7 Layer Dip

1 can (16 oz) refried beans

4 oz (1/2 of a block) cream cheese

shredded lettuce

2 tablespoons taco seasoning

sour cream

shredded cheese

Sliced olives


Tortilla Chips

Homegating 7 Layer Dip


You can easily prepare this dip the day before the Big Game using the Glad® Food Bags Storage Gallon and Glad® Food Containers Family Size purchased from Dollar General.

Homegating 7 Layer Dip

You can make your dip in one of the Glad® Food Containers Family Size (or use a few depending on crowd size) or a baking dish.

Homegating 7 Layer Dip

First, place the refried beans and cream cheese together in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 30 seconds and stir until combined and extra creamy. Microwave for longer if cream cheese is still hard or not creamy. Stir in taco seasoning. This will be your first layer you place in your dish.

7 Layer Dip

Layer lettuce, cheese, salsa, olives and sour cream on top of refried bean mixture. Use as much lettuce, cheese and sour cream as you like. I hate to put a measurement on these as I believe it’s more of a personal preference. I love preparing these a few days before using the Glad® Food Bags and Glad® Food Containers, so I can focus on the rest of my party.

Add jalapenos if you like more heat! Serve with tortilla chips.
