Saucy Spider 7-Layer Dip Recipe

Prep Time: 20 min. 

Makes one 9-inch pie pan.


  • 15 oz can of refried beans
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 1/2 cup Chipotle Yumm! Sauce
  • 8 oz container of guacamole
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • red salsa
  • diced red onions, tomatoes, scallions
  • sliced black olives and jalapenos (fresh or pickled)
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • juice from 1/2 a lime


  1. Mix spices into the refried beans until smooth.
  2. Mix the sour cream, Yumm! Sauce, and lime juice together.
  3. Using a silicone spatula, spread the beans into the bottom of a pie pan and up the sides.
  4. Spread 1 3/4 cups of the Yumm! Sauce and sour cream mixture on top of the beans, reserving a 1/4 cup for the spiderweb.
  5. Next, gently spread the guacamole layer on top. (It can be helpful to mix it up in a bowl first to loosen and smooth out the texture so it spreads more easily.)
  6. Sprinkle shredded cheese around the edges of the pan.
  7. Top the cheese with the diced onions, tomatoes, scallions, olives, and jalapenos.
  8. Fill a pastry bag (or a plastic bag with one corner tip cut off) with the remaining Yumm! Sauce mixture.
  9. To create the spiderweb, draw one vertical line in the middle from top to bottom. Then draw an X through the middle of that line from edge to edge. Draw curved arch lines to connect the straight lines. Do your best and have fun! It doesn’t have to be perfect.
  10. Serve with blue and white corn chips, carrots, bell peppers, celery sticks, and your favorite salsa for dipping.
