How To Prepare Super Bowl Food!

You’ll need French Bread dough for the mini bread bowls. I used Pillsbury.

You’ll slice the dough into 12 pieces.

Press the dough in bottom and up sides of muffin tin cups. As soon as your remove them from the oven, use the bottom end of a wooden spoon and press out the centers to form little bowls.

How To Prepare 7 Layer Bean Dip


Add 1 teaspoon of taco seasoning to your sour cream.

Add 2 teaspoons of taco seasoning to your refried beans.

Spread 1 teaspoon of beans into bottom of little bowls then top with 1/2 teaspoon of salsa.

Top with 1/2 teaspoon guacamole and 1/2 teaspoon sour cream.

Top with a pinch of shredded cheddar cheese.

Last but not least, top with a pinch of fresh chopped cilantro and a black olive if you’d like.

My little helper was playing cops and robbers with my little appetizers, ha! Pax was so tiny in 2015!


Serve these babies room temperature and enjoy!
