In the spirit of the Super Bowl, Guinness World Records was compelled to slap a certificate on the world's largest ever … 7-layer chip dip. Made with all the favorites, including refried beans and guac, the dip was created and recorded via a Facebook Live stream, and the final product weighed in at a whopping 540 pounds!
Delish reports that this project was commissioned by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and his manager and production partner Dany Garcia. As you'll see in the video below, the dip is so gigantic that it has to be stored in a 100-gallon fish tank. The layers are made up of about 154 pounds of refried beans, 77 quarts of sour cream with 10 pounds of seasoning mixed into it, 77 pounds of cheese, 38 quarts each of guacamole and tomatoes, 19 quarts of green onions and finally, 37 quarts of black olives. I think this dip could feed a small country!
The dip took a total of five hours to make, but don't worry, the video doesn't capture that entire timespan. It does, however, take about 32 minutes to conclude.
If you want to make your own version of this dip at home (preferably a much smaller version), you can check out what they do in the video and mimic their moves with smaller portion sizes. Start with a layer of refried beans, evened out along the bottom of your dish. Next, mix your sour cream with McCormick's Taco Seasoning to get a nice taco flavor incorporated into it, and then spread that along the top of the refried beans as the next layer.
The next step is dumping pounds and pound of cheese on top as the next layer. I mean that figuratively, not literally, unless you're trying to duplicate this insanely sized recipe. Next is a layer of guacamole and then a tomato layer, followed by green onions and lastly, black olives (leave those off of mine!).
In order for any food to actually qualify for a Guinness World Records title, it must be consumed. Otherwise, lots of food could get pointlessly wasted. Therefore, the dip will go to a charity to feed the homeless. What I want to know is, how did they get it there?
