How to Make 7 Layer Dip Halloween Style
As always, this recipe is based on how I would make my Halloween 7 layer dip for a party. But, YOU control the ingredients here, so get creative with the layers of your spider web taco dip! You can change up the flavors, swap out ingredients, and make it as light or indulgent as you want.
For a nutritional boost, but just as much deliciousness, try refried black beans instead of regular! Often, traditional refried beans are hiding sneaky trans fats and hydrogenated oils. But, if you can find them, refried black beans tend to have fewer and cleaner ingredients.
Plus, the black color is even more suited to a Halloween taco dip than the standard brown refried beans. Especially once it’s paired with some orange shredded cheese and vibrant green guacamole!
For the rest of my layers, I chose taco classics that are also light and wholesome, like lettuce, tomatoes, olives, and some guacamole on top. Then, if you have a small squeeze bottle, fill it with sour cream and decorate your Halloween 7 layer dip with a spooky spider web!
The festive fun has just begun…

Halloween 7 Layer Dip: 1 can refried black beans, or regular 1 pack taco seasoning ¼–½ cup salsa ¼–½ cup shredded lettuce 2 cans (4-oz ea.) sliced olives ¼–½ cup shredded Mexican cheese 1 Roma tomato, diced ¼–½ cup guacamole 2–3 Tbsp sour cream
Dippers: tortilla chips celery sticks baby carrots anything you like!
To a large bowl, add refried black beans and taco seasoning and mix well to combine.
In a baking dish or serving platter (I used a 9-inch pie dish), layer beans, salsa, lettuce, olives, cheese, and diced tomato. Cover with guacamole, spreading it into a smooth layer.
Add sour cream on top, using a squeeze bottle to draw a spider web shape. (I started by drawing intersecting lines in an asterisk/star shape across the dish, then curved lines in between to connect them!)
Garnish the edge of the dish with more diced tomatoes, olives, and cheese. Serve with your favorite dippers!
