7 Layer Dip
Hi Everyone, what’s the Halloween party dip that everyone loves and can’t get enough of? It’s 7 Layer Dip! There are so many versions of it out there but this one is served hot with fresh ingredients on top. You can arrange those fresh ingredients into a pumpkin if you want, like I did for this Autumn-Halloween-themed 7 Layer Dip.
Everyone who has tried this dip goes back for seconds and thirds and beyond because it is so irresistible. I knew that it had to be a baked version because when it’s baked all those layers bubble together and make a lovely savory combination – perfect for dipping!
Of course you need something to dip into the 7 Layer Dip, I choose Tortilla Chips but you can do bread slices, crackers, even sliced veggies.
RO*TEL provides an easy way to add a little zesty kick to any recipe because there’s no need to prep any extra tomatoes and chilies. RO*TEL® Original Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies delivers a bold & yummy flavor to this 7 Layer Dip.
