7 Layer Dip Burritos

This recipe is basically a bunch of 7 layer dip, wrapped up in a tortilla. Doesn’t that sound good? I loved these and they were pretty easy to make. This is a no meat recipe as is, but you could easily add some seasoned ground beef, chicken or shrimp to these.

What is in 7 layer dip? Typically refried beans, cheese, olives, tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream and guacamole. It is usually eaten with tortilla chips, but I liked the idea of making it into a burrito. Since the ingredients are pretty simple here, you want to make sure everything is well seasoned. I added some rice to fill these out a little more, which I seasoned with chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin and salt.

I made homemade guacamole for these, as it is a major flavor component. You can make it however you like it and also use whatever salsa you prefer. We ate these with some Valentina hot sauce drizzled on them. Yummy!
