Today we are featuring our "7 Layer Mexican Bean Dip" which was served at our last get together.  We hosted a Mexican food dinner, with taco, chips, this bean dip and pico de gallo.  All of these recipes I am excited to share with you!!!

This dip is always a huge hit, but it received even more rave reviews than normal.  So, I decided to share the recipe.  Hope you enjoy!

7 Layer Mexican Bean Dip
1 pound ground chicken
2 tablespoons Mrs Dash Southwest chipotle seasoning
drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
1/4 c water
1 can refried beans
2 cups Spicy Baked Brown Rice (cooked) or your favorite cooked rice
1/2 cup salsa verde
1/2 cup enchilada sauce
8 oz Mexican cheese blend, shredded
1/2 can large black olives, sliced

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium skillet over medium heat drizzle olive oil in warm pan.  Add chicken and brown.  Once chicken is cooked, add chipotle seasoning and stir to combine.  Add water and cook until water is cooked out.  Set chicken aside until needed.

In a medium casserole dish or heat safe bowl (I used a 1.75 quart).  Spread refried beans in an even later.

Add rice and spread evenly.

Add salsa verde and smooth over rice layer.

Sprinkle approximately 4 ounces of the cheese onto salsa verde layer.  Sprinkle cooked chicken evenly over cheese layer.

Add enchilada sauce and smooth evenly over chicken.  (Notice I put my cheese on top of the chicken, so I had to take it back off and put the enchilada sauce on it.  That is why you see the cheese in there.)

Sprinkle the remaining cheese over top.

Arrange sliced olives on top of cheese.

Place dish on a small baking sheet and place in center of oven.  Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and lightly browned.

Serve with chips.

  12. I made the 7 Layer Mexican Dip for a Super Bowl Party. I added sliced jalapenos on the Green Salsa layer and lettuce, tomato, guacamole and black olives to the top. It was a biggggggg hit. Most people ate it as a casserole instead of a dip. Thank you. That one's in my permanent recipe file.

  13. I have a dumb question. Do you cook the rice first???

  14. Replies
    1. Yes. The rice is cooked. There is a link for spicy baked brown rice, but you can use whatever rice you like. Enjoy. Let us know how it goes.

  15. What brand salsa verde? It looks so much smoothie than the ones I've seen before.

    1. You can use whatever you like. I even use a can of diced green chiles sometimes. Sometimes I puree the can of diced chiles or use Green Chile Enchilada Sauce (Macayos Brand). Enjoy!
