7 Layer Dip Recipe

Whether we're having friends over to watch the game or family over for a barbecue, party or holiday, this 7 layer dip recipe is always welcome. And honestly, I don't know whether the leftovers store well, because we've never had any leftovers whenever I serve it!

Even better: This dip is a snap to prepare. You can use store-bought or homemade guacamole. And while I like to make my own, there are so many good guacamoles available at the supermarket these days, I often save myself the trouble. Serve with good-quality tortilla chips.
