  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • 2
    Roll the Pillsbury™ pizza crust out on a floured surface. Using a cookie cutter, cut 12 circles out of the dough. Ball the dough up, roll it out again for 10-12 more circles.
  • 3
    Lightly coat a muffin tin with cooking spray. Press each pizza circle into each tin, pressing it up the sides as best you can.
  • 4
    Spoon a little of the refried beans into each pizza cup. (You can leave it off of some if desired.)
  • 5
    Slide into the oven and bake for 9 minutes, or until slightly puffed and browned.
  • 6
    While baking, brown your beef. Drain excess fat, then season with the Old El Paso™ seasoning and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
  • 7
    At this point, you can set out the baked pizza cups, along with the lettuce, olives, sour cream, guacamole, beef, cheese and salsa on the table. You can assemble different variations, or let your guests assemble their own!
  • 8
    Serve immediately.

More About This Recipe
It's like, schizo-foodia! And I couldn't be happier.

Is it pizza? Is it cupcakes? Is it Mexican food? Do I use a backhoe?

Yes. Yes. Yes. And duh.

These trans-globular game day snackies are giving me a serious case of the giggle bug. I mean just listen - little cups of pizza dough filled with a mix and match of 7-layer dip ingredients. Aaaaam I kidding? No. No, I'm not.

Make 'em meaty, make 'em cheesy, make 'em beany, make 'em guacamoley, make 'em sour creamy. Just make these 7-Layer Dip Pizza cupcakes appear on your tongue over and over and over and watch your life unfold in a truly unimaginable way.

(they. are. good.)

Grab some beef, Old El Paso seasoning, refried beans, and a tube of Pillsbury thin crust pizza dough, some salsa, shredded cheddar, sliced black olives, guacamole, sour cream, and some lettuce!

Brown your meat up all nicely with the Old El Paso taco seasoning packet. I used half. AND, little tip-a-roo: if your beef renders a lot of fat, drain it BEFORE you add the seasoning. That way you're not draining all that flava flave.

Roll out your pizza dough and cut little circles in it, lawk sew. AND, you can absolutely ball the dough back up, and roll it out again for 10-12 more circles. Boom.

Then spoon a little bit of the refried beans in each cup! You can totally leave some beanless, in case you have any bean-hating guests.

Whip up some guac! (1 avocado, 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro and a good squeeze of lime juice. And a sprinkling of salt.) Or pick up some store-bought. No bigs.

Okay, aaah! I'm already so excited. You bake the little cups for about 9 minutes, and in the MEANTIME, you set up your party table. Arrange all the ingredients in little bowls and what not, so that your guests can assemble their own little 7-layer dippy bites!

I got excited about these things. And then I ate 450. Prooooomise me you'll 7-layer dip pizza cupcake your face.

Bev wishes she had 450 more. Right now. For more musings, visit her blog Bev Cooks and her Tablespoon profile.
