    Take this recipe from a 9 to a TEN by adding half of a cup of mayo to the cream cheese and sour cream mix. I've been doing this in my seven layer dip for years, and everyone always wonders what the secret ingredient is

    Hello, I enjoyed reading your recipe for the seven-layer dip. I first got the idea from a bottle of PACE salsa. I have made it my own way, I spread the refried beans on the bottom, then I add a layer of sour cream with the taco seasoning mixed i n it, then a layer of guacamole. I like the Dean's brand guacamole. Then the grated cheese, and I like to top it off with a combination of chopped tomatoes, sliced olives and sliced green onion.
