Mini 7 Layer Dip Bowls

Long time readers might remember these mind-blowing appetizers, Mini Spinach Dip Bread Bowls.  If they don't, they probably didn't make them.  BUT - PLEASE DO!  They are a delicious, fantastic, and impressive appetizer!  It's not too late to fall in love with them.

Later on, I found a recipe from the Picky Palate blog that was SIMILAR, but with 7 Layer Taco Dip.

It's delicious, and impressive, and well - that's it.  What more do you need?

The cast of characters is below.  Remember when I said "no store bought seasonings"?  Forget that.

Open up the tube of pizza dough.  (I can't help but sing that to the same line in Mable by Goldfinger)

Cut it in equal slices and press each slice into the bottom wells of a muffin pan.  Make sure you spray the pan with cooking spray.

Then bake.  I used the end of my lemon zester to make the dough cups a little larger - even after they were baked.

Next, combine the refried beans with taco seasoning.

In another bowl, combine sour cream with taco seasoning.

Next, start filling the cups each with 1 teaspoon of refried beans.

Add 1/2 teaspoon salsa.

Add 1/2 teaspoon guacamole.

1/2 teaspoon seasoned sour cream.

Then sprinkle on some cheddar cheese and chopped cilantro.

Serve to your mega-impressed guests and devour.

These were SO good!  Fresh and bright!  I would encourage you to add a little extra cheese.  And make sure you use the tiny holes on the grater!

Now - sure - these are an impressive appetizer....  But they are straight up a lot of tedious work.  And, because of the bread, I'm not sure how "in advance" they could be made without getting soggy.

I still think you should make them though.

Hop on over to Jenny's blog at Picky Palate to check out the recipe!
