Last Sunday was the Superbowl and like a lot of other people out there, we spent our time watching the big game with friends and a slew of good food. If you’re like me, any get together presents a list of worries – will there be enough food? How long do I need to prepare? What will I need to keep warm? Can I get away with not turning on my oven?
This time around, I decided I wanted my gathering to be low-key and low stress, so I opted for snack foods and dishes that could be easily prepared in advance.
Since it was the Superbowl, and I don’t think my husband thinks any football related event is quite complete without it, I needed to make a seven layer dip. It truly is the best of the Tex-Mex snack food world!
This dip barely needs any measuring and I feel somewhat silly calling it a recipe. It is delicious though! Needless to say, it’s amazing with tortilla chips (my favorites are Juanitas) and can also be used as part of an all-in-one addition to a taco salad or burrito. Enjoy!
