7 Layer Dip Cups Recipe

7 Layer Dip Cup

This 7-Layer Dip cup recipe is great for parties or afternoon celebrations. A personal spin on the traditional baking dish version, this dip recipe is a fun and exciting way to serve up flavor for Cinco de Mayo or any other special occasion.

As written, this 7 layer dip cup recipe yields 12 individual servings. To scale this recipe, use approximately two tablespoons each of refried beans, guacamole, and sour cream per 5-oz. appetizer cup. Then top each cup with chopped 3-4 cherry or grape tomatoes, one tablespoon cheese, 3-4 chopped black olives, and a few green onion slices. Also adding Conrad Farms Gourmet Salsas can really kick the flavor into high gear.

We have found that a couple of tortilla chips garnishing this 7 layer dip cup appetizer is more convenient and makes for a bold presentation.
