Simple 7 Layer Dip : Party Food / Potluck

I took this yummy Simple 7 Layer Dip to our annual Smith Family Christmas Party / Potluck in December with my Dad's massive side of the family! I decided to make this classic dish into a slightly healthier version. It was a hit! The bowl was completely empty before the last person made it through the buffet line and it takes no time to make.


  • 31 oz can fat free refried beans

  • 32 oz plain fat free greek yogurt

  • 1 packet McCormick Hot Taco Seasoning

  • 16 oz medium Pace Picante Sauce

  • 8 oz shredded lettuce

  • 2 C fiesta blend cheese

  • 1 small packet cherry tomatoes

  • 3.8 oz can black olives

*I'd like to note that I did not use the ingredients in their entirety; these are just the sizes I had. I made one 8x8 dish for the party and a small bowl for Keith and myself to enjoy later.*


  • Layer 1: Scoop the can of refried beans into a bowl and stir it up until smooth; then spread a layer onto the bottom of an 8x8 dish.

  • Layer 2: Scoop about 3/4 of the yogurt into a bowl and blend it with 3/4 of the taco seasoning packet; then spread a layer on top of the beans.

  • Layer 3: Pour a layer of salsa over the yogurt.

*I didn't put layers 4-7 on until we were about to leave. The lettuce can get a little soggy if it sits too long. I stored the half-made dip in the fridge.*

  • Layer 4: Spread lettuce over the salsa.

  • Layer 5: Spread cheese over the lettuce.

  • Layer 6: Cut tomatoes into slices and spread over the cheese.

  • Layer 7: Rinse olives and spread over the tomatoes and cheese.

Serve with your choice of chips!

I hope you enjoy this simple recipe!
