7 layer dip ~ game day snacks/ pt.2

Seven layers of flavor!
Right now your probably knee deep in cookie dough and last minute Christmas shopping. Me? I am all set for the big day. I will bake a little more on Friday morning but really needed to be prepared for last minutes guests and of course Navy's big bowl game Thursday night. So I went looking for another new game day snack recipe. As I read through several food magazines I noticed that layered dips were in every single copy. I chuckled and knew right then what I was going to make. 7-Layer Dip here we come. 

I have made this dip every football season since I was married 22 years ago. It is full of flavor and never fails to please. You just layer the ingredients and your off. Simple, simple, simple!

Celebrate the Feast!
