I’ve seen these great individual seven layer dip cups all over. Foodgawker, Pinterest, and even in magazines. They make for a great presentation and are perfect portion control. The school held their famous Dollar Day bake sale at the end of the year so I signed up to bring these. They were a hit!
Individual Seven Layer Dip Cups
- 9 oz. clear plastic tumblers
- Vegetarian refried beans (or black beans)
- Guacamole, homemade or store bought
- Salsa, homemade or store bought
- Sour cream
- Shredded cheese
- Black olives, sliced
- Green onion, thinly sliced
- Tortilla chips
- Prepare refried beans. Add taco seasoning to flavor the beans, if desired. Allow to cool, then scoop the beans into a ziplock bag. Snip off a small corner of the bag and pipe the beans into the bottom of the cups.
- Place the guacamole, salsa, and sour cream all in separate ziplock bags. As with the beans, snip off a small corner and pipe enough to make a full layer in the cup. Pipe and add the ingredients in the order listed above. Tip: Pipe against the edge of the cups to get a full layered look.
- On the sour cream, sprinkle the shredded cheese, then olives, and finish off with the green onion. Chill in fridge until serving.
- Fill additional cups with tortilla chips for serving.
I also made granola and packaged it up into little bags. Those weren’t as much of a hit. In fact I bought back some of my own granola at the end of the sale. How’s that for dedication?
For the record, I made a different recipe than I normally do for my granola. Wrong move. The granola I normally make tasted way better than this version I tried for the bake sale. Never try new recipes on important days. Lesson learned.
