Seven Layer Mexican Dip

Need a delicious party food for your football lovers, church youth group, or any other get together?  This layered Mexican dip may just be what you need!
The original recipe called for the dip to be served cold which is what you see in my pictures. However after taking the pictures, I decided I wanted mine hot so I microwaved for a few minutes.  I liked it cold, but I loved it when served hot!  You can subtract any of the toppings that you don’t like and add anything extra too.  I think guacamole or avocado would be delicious!
This recipe is super versatile and easy to make.  It’s definitely a keeper!
