Howdy, fellow nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts! JW here, your friendly neighborhood Bull Creek Studio blogger, back with a recipe for both your chip-dipping pleasure and your emotional well-being. Let’s face it, the Dallas Cowboys didn’t exactly stampede their way to the Super Bowl this year. So, instead of moping around like a lost armadillo, let’s channel our inner Texan and whip up a legendary 7-layer dip that’s as bold and flavorful as the wide-open plains!

Now, some folks might say, “JW, why aren’t you using queso fresco or pico de gallo? Those are way more Tex-Mex!” But hold your horses, partners. This dip is a metaphor for our current situation. We’re taking the classic 7-layer and giving it a little Bull Creek Studio twist, just like we gotta adjust our expectations sometimes. So, dust off your serving platter, grab your favorite chips, and let’s get dippin’!


  • 1 can (16 oz) refried beans (because sometimes, basic is beautiful)
  • 1 cup guacamole (homemade or store-bought, your call)
  • 1 cup sour cream (plain or flavored, depending on your adventurous spirit)
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped (because tears are for the draft, not the dip)
  • 1 can (15 oz) black olives, drained and chopped (because who doesn’t love a good olive?)
  • 1 jar (16 oz) peach salsa (sweet and tangy, just like our memories of past Cowboys victories)
  • 1 cup white cheddar cheese, shredded (because sometimes, you just gotta go classic)


  • Spread the beans: Think of this as the foundation, the bedrock of your dip-iverse. Evenly coat your serving platter with the refried beans, creating a smooth, creamy base.
  • Guac it like you mean it: Next, comes the green gold – the guacamole. Layer it on thick, like a victory parade down McKinney Avenue. Remember, the more guac, the merrier!
  • Sour cream it up: Now, smooth things out with a dollop of sour cream. This is the yin to the guac’s yang, the calm to the storm (or at least, the calm before the chip storm).
  • Red onion revolution: Time for a little bite! Sprinkle the chopped red onion over the sour cream, like confetti raining down on… well, not the Cowboys this year, but hey, a celebration is a celebration!
  • Olive the moment: Scatter the black olives across the landscape, like little gems dotting the Texas Hill Country. Remember, even when things are tough, there’s always beauty to be found.
  • Peachy keen salsa: Now for the pièce de résistance, the unexpected twist! Drizzle the peach salsa over the entire dip, creating a sweet and tangy surprise. Just like life, this dip is full of unexpected flavors!
  • Cheddar the way: Finally, shower the entire creation with a generous layer of shredded white cheddar cheese. Because, let’s be honest, cheese always makes things better.

Dipping Tips:

  • Use a variety of chips for maximum textural enjoyment. Think tortilla chips, pita chips, even plantain chips!
  • Don’t be afraid to get creative with your ingredients. Swap the peach salsa for pineapple salsa, add a layer of cooked chorizo, or even throw in some chopped jalapeños for a spicy kick.
  • Most importantly, remember that this dip is about celebrating our love for Texas, the outdoors, and delicious food – even when our favorite team lets us down. So, grab your chips, gather your friends, and dig in!

There you have it, folks! A 7-layer dip that’s as delicious as it is cathartic. Remember, even when the Cowboys aren’t in the Super Bowl, there’s always something to celebrate in the great outdoors and the company of good friends. Now, go forth, dip with gusto, and enjoy the game!

P.S. We working on expanding Bull Creek Studio’s product line to include custom embroidery merchandise! We’re going to help you reconnect with the wild side, even if the Cowboys can’t.
