First in 10 (seven layer dip plus 3!)

It’s Super Bowl and though I’m blue through and through I decided to go for flavor over flair in my game day apps.  I love a good 7 layer dip.  Anything that transports tortilla chips to my mouth is good by me.  Now take that classic dip and add 3 MORE LAYERS and you’ve got a game day classic.  All in!

First in 10 Layer Dip
Serves 10-15

2 (15.5 ounce) cans black beans
1 package taco seasoning
4 ounces queso fresco, crumbled
1 (15.5 ounce) jar salsa (I like a thick and chunky with some heat)
1 recipe guacamole
3/4 cup sour cream
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
1 cup sliced black olives
1/2 cup sliced pickled jalapenos
1 cup prepared pico de gallo

Pico de Gallo
1/2 cup chopped fresh tomato
1 tablespoon minced red onion
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons sliced scallions
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 teaspoon olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper

In a food processor combine black beans (including liquid in can) with taco seasoning.  Puree until smooth and then spread to fill the bottom of a clear baking dish by 1/4 inch. Next, add queso fresco and then salsa and spread evenly over beans.  Top with guacamole, spreading evenly.  Next add sour cream, cheddar cheese,  iceberg lettuce, then olives, then jalapenos.  In a small bowl, mix ingredients for pico de gallo.  Season to taste and strain extra liquid.  Finish 10 layer dip by topping with pico de gallo and sprinkling with a touch more salt.  Serve with corn chips and enjoy the game!
