The TGI Friday’s Nine Layer Dip is one of the menu items that really put TGI Friday’s on the map. Can you go to a party nowadays without there being a layered bean dip any more? No. I think this is a standard appetizer that everyone loves to serve.
What makes this dish extra special? I think is it is seasoning of the beans with taco seasoning. This careful step of seasoning the beans during the preparation is really key to making this dish taste extra amazing.
The ingredients in this recipe are very common and easy to find, you will want to add refried beans, taco seasoning, guacamole, sour cream, chopped tomatoes, cilantro, shredded cheese, black olives, bacon, and green onions.
Now if you want to lighten up the recipe, you may want to substitute the sour cream for a light sour cream. You could also use fat-free refried beans and a low-fat cheddar cheese. If you want to make it Vegan, you can use vegan-friendly “sour cream”, and “cheese”, and you an omit the bacon. So this recipe is very flexible.
There is no reason why you need to buy this multi-layer dip at the store, you can make it at home, and enjoy a wonderful fresh layer dip.
