Seven Layer Mexican Dip

Amy Herald


I used more garnish in the picture than the recipe calls for because I LOVE black olives and green onions. Fritos works best with this dip because you can scoop them and this is a heavy dip. When I make this for Halloween I spread the sour cream on the top layer over the garnish and I hold a little back, add some food coloring to make it gray and pipe a spider web over the top, throw a dollar store plastic spider on top and serve with blue tortilla chips for a spooky Halloween appetizer!
