7-Layer Dip

7-layerdip2

This weekend was an eventful and fun-filled one.  I was excited to make this 7-Layer Dip, which so many of us are familiar for a baby shower. All of the food that was served there was fabulous and I was happy to contribute, so I wanted to share this version of my 7-Layer Dip.

One of the things I like to do when making a recipe that everyone is familiar with, is to look up a few different versions of it and then add my own twist or sometimes I’ll just create my own recipe from those recipes.  Most of the time this is a good thing, but I have had some flops that I’ve learned from too :).  Yikes!  This one was a minor adjustment so I knew I would be okay, but I  did break the carnal rule — “Take a dish that’s tried and true and don’t try anything new” (note to self -again:).  This actually turned out great though and I’ll keep making it this way in the future.  Soooooo this is the dip scoop …….I have been loving a little kick to my food lately, so I decided to add fire-roasted green chiles to the sour cream/taco mix layer and it hit the spot.  I hope you enjoy it too.
