    This is fantastic! I love the black beans in place of refried. I have made this several times, and it was the hit of every party - everyone requests it now. In place of mixing the cut avocados with the salsa, I actually cut thin slices and laid them out on top of the dip to make it look extra appetizing.  -  14 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I absolutely love this seven-layer dip! It was the first one I've ever made, and absolutely everyone loved it...I've never had so many people ask me for a recipe!  -  10 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe is the classic. It was scrumptious and had six adults and several small children hovering over it until it was gone....  -  07 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
