Seven Layer Dip

A definite game day favorite. This dip works well with nacho chips as well as cut veggies. We heard from a lot of people don’t care for refried beans and love the suggestion of starting with a layer of shredded lettuce instead!

This dip is meant to be made and served right away while the hamburger is still hot, is you’re planning on making it earlier in the day we suggest leaving out the sour cream/cream cheese mixture and add it after the dip comes out of the oven.
