7 Layer Pulled Pork Dip
This recipe is one of my go-to's for any event. In fact if you have had us over to any kind of Birthday, BBQ, Pot Luck or Game Day, I likely brought this dip! Regardless of where I bring it, it's always a huge hit and I'm constantly asked for the recipe.
I actually remember quite well about 8 years ago when at a friends party, her Dad had parked himself right in front of my dip and didn't leave the table until it was gone. I didn't blame him though, it's really that good.
Being honest though I don't think I ever would have thought to mix BBQ Pulled Pork into a South Western Style dip. That was until I had Pulled Pork nachos one time at this bar I worked at in Boston about 12 years ago. They were the perfect mix of everything, just like this dip!
The thing I like most about this recipe is not only is it forgiving, it's super easy if you decide to not make your own pulled pork. I've made this with homemade Pulled Pork and also store bought like Llloyd's. If you have been reading my blogs for a while, you know I make almost everything from scratch but it's okay to be lazy sometimes, at least that's what I try to tell myself. haha
The other part I love most about it is I usually have 90% of the ingredients on hand. There's nothing worse than having to run all over the grocery store trying to find random produce and items only to find yourself going to another store.
Prep and heat time also take almost no time at all. If you plan to bring this to an event, you can absolutely make it ahead of time then heat it in the stove either right before or at the party. I say heat time because it isn't necessary to cook it for a long period of time as the Pulled pork added to the dip will be precooked, the only reason to heat it is to melt the cheese on top. It should be noted that the photos in this recipe are from a time that I had doubled the recipe.
You will only need an 8x8 casserole dish if you don't plan on doubling it. Other than a Casserole dish you will need 18oz of BBQ Pulled Pork (shredded), 1/2 cup Canned Corn (drained), 1/2 cup Canned Black Beans (drained and rinsed), 1 cup of Cheddar Cheese (shredded), 1 medium tomato (diced), 1 2.5oz can of Sliced Black Olives (drained), 1 bunch of Green Onions and Sour Cream (optional).
Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Next spread all 18oz of your Pulled Pork on the bottom of the dish. You don't need to grease the dish as it won't be in the oven for long but you can if you wish. Lightly pack the pulled pork down using the bottom of a fork.
Next layer 1/2 cup of your drained canned corn, then a 1/2 cup of your drained and rinsed black beans. Dice your tomato, drain the olives and chop you green onions. Add those in layers on top of the black beans while saving about half of the green onions for the end.
Now it's time to add the cheese then bake at 350 Fahrenheit for 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Top with more green onions and dollops of sour cream if desired! That's it, super easy. Enjoy with your favorite tortilla chip and be sure to bring to a party, everyone will love it!
