Superbowl Sunday is approaching rapidly, and we’re sorry if your team met their demise too early this year – but that doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of this excellent opportunity to rock out with your friends and family!

“Will their be food at your Superbowl Party?” Someone will likely ask you this ridiculous question if you’re planning to host a Superbowl soiree. These people should be directed three doors down to the party that has mere “food,” because your party will have epic culinary creations that The GentleManual helped you make.

Easy stuff. Just a little preparation, patience, focus and you can make a 13-Layer Dip that will annihilate any single-digit dips of the past. Here’s what you’ll need before you get started:


1lb of Ground Beef

2 Can of Refried Beans

6oz of Sour Cream

4oz of Salsa

4oz of Guacamole

6oz of Queso Cheese Dip

1/4-1/2 Cup of Cooked and Chopped Bacon

1/4-1/2 Cup of Diced Jalapenos

3/4 Cup of Diced Yellow Onion

1 Cup of Diced Tomatoes

1/4 Cup of Green Onions

1/4 Cup of Black Olives

3/4 Cup of Shredded Mexican Cheese

1 Package of Taco Seasoning

Disposable Roaster Pan

How to Pull This All Together: Start with your 1lb of ground beef by taking your taco seasoning of choice and following the browning instructions. You can get technical and go spice by spice some other time. There’s a game coming on soon and no time to waste. After you’ve browned your meat, drain accordingly. Once this first step is done, the rest is easy.

Chop your layers down as fine as you’d like them. Start with your beef layer as the foundation, then go in the order pictured and layer by layer, distribute each ingredient spread flat on top of the previous layers.

Depending on your preference, some people prefer this dip cold. But certainly don’t be afraid to set in in the oven on a low temperature prior to the party. After you’re done, place your wagers and talk your trash. Because Superbowl Sunday only comes once a year and you have to make it memorable. Enjoy!
