It’s everyone’s favorite dip but with one crucial difference: It’s hot and melty. This oven-friendly seven-layer dip starts with an extra-creamy cream cheese bottom layer, then gets topped with some smooth Tex-Mex-spiced refried beans, a layer of melted cheddar, plus ripe olives, and finished off with chopped tomatoes, sliced jalapeños and fresh avocado, so it has all the deliciously zesty, fresh contrast of the original recipe. Try this easy and indulgent dip next time you’re having a party—we think it will receive a warm reception! MORE+ LESS-

Expert Tips

  • Instead of trying to spread the mixture over the cream cheese, just spoon in loose dollops. The beans will spread when baked.
  • It may seem strange to add heavy cream to seven-layer dip, but it helps make the cream cheese layer smooth and perfectly dippable.
  • Try this recipe when the weather turns cold—it might even become your preferred version, as it has for some of our editors! This recipe was dreamed up over a shared plate of nachos. As usual, our editors were discussing how to make the thing we were eating even better, and we started wondering about heating up our favorite bean dip. The Betty Crocker Test Kitchens knew just how to pull this off, and we’re excited to share the recipe that resulted with you.
