We’re having a Super Hero’s party! So of course, we need “Super Hero” food!
Something Special! – Something Fun! – Something Delicious!
My daughter and momma to our little “Super Hero” had found lots of ideas on Pinterest for our party and one was to create Spider-Man’s face out of 7 layer taco dip! So now how do we do that? While she had a picture of what she wanted, there weren’t any step by step “how to’s”. So, we dove right in and created our own.
Here’s what you will need to recreate your own
Spider-Man Taco Dip
1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
1 (16 ounce) jar salsa, drained
1 large tomato
1 bunch of green onions chopped
1 bag shredded lettuce
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 can sliced black olives, drained
In a medium bowl, mix the taco seasoning and the refried beans and spread on the large platter shaping into the Spider-Man head as you work.
Mix the sour cream and cream cheese in a medium bowl. Set aside about ¾ cup of the mixture and spread the remaining over the refried beans.
Layer the lettuce, green onions, cheese and tomatoes over the cream cheese mixture.
Carefully spread the drained salsa over the top of your creation. It is important to drain the salsa. We learned this as we went along. You will see here where the salsa has drained onto the plate. We were able to absorb it with paper towels but it would have been so much easier to drain it in the beginning.
Add the remainder of your sour cream and cream cheese mixture to a small plastic baggie and cut a small hole in one of the bottom corners. This will serve as your “icing” bag. Carefully draw your spider web over the salsa.
Add the eyes to your web creation.
Once you have your eyes placed, outline the eyes using the drained black olives which have been cut in halves. When we got ready to use our olives, we discovered we had purchased chopped olives instead of the sliced ones! We were able to make them work – but the sliced would have been easier.
All done! Now be sure to take a few pictures of your Spider-Man Taco Dip party creation – before your super heroes devour it!
And stop by soon as we share our complete super hero party – full of even more ideas!
