7 Layer Mexcian Dip with Homemade Tortilla Chips

Tailgating yumminess!!!  I can't wait to give this a try.
    For the Homemade Tortilla Chips
  • 2 packages tortillas, medium size
  • 2 limes
  • kosher salt
For the 7 Layer Mexican Dip
  • 1 can refried beans (16 oz.)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons taco seasoning
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, finely shredded
  • 1 can diced green chiles
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
    For the Homemade Tortilla Chips
  1. Cut store bought tortillas into wedges and arrange in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet.
  2. Squeeze a lime wedge over top and sprinkle with kosher salt.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 10 minutes, until crispy and slightly brown.
    For the 7 Layer Mexican Dip
  5. Mix together the refried beans, lime juice, and water and spread on serving plate.
  6. Whisk together the sour cream, cream cheese, and taco seasoning, and spread on top of the refried bean mixture.
  7. Follow with layers of cheddar cheese, green chiles, diced tomatoes, diced avocado and chopped cilantro respectively. Note that I did layer them from edge to edge in my photos to show the layers, but I'd simply cover each layer totally otherwise.
  8. Optional: squeeze some fresh lime juice over the avocado layer to prevent browning.
