7 Layer Dip Cups Appetizers

7 Layer Dip Cup Appetizers are tasty and visually appealing!

Appetizers are one of my favorite things to make in the kitchen. They are tasty and often easiest to make look great, too. Traditionally, you make a 7 layer dip in a dish where you can view the individual layers. This appetizer is no different. These 5 oz. clear cups are perfect! They are hard plastic, BPA-free, and reusable. They can even be frozen!

As written, this 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.

Enjoy a Mexican-food theme night and serve these while you’re cooking up a batch of our Sizzling Chicken Fajitas!
