This is one of our favorite dips....actually it's a favorite of just about everybody, I suppose! It's a staple at so many parties. There are many variations and about as many layers as you wish to put on.
This time I tried a different recipe than the one I normally use. Five Layer Mexican Dip.They were doing a demo at the local grocery store and handing out recipe cards, so I grabbed one.
I used to be a food demo there myself, a few years back, as a summer job. It was fun and I got to try alot of different products. It was always interesting to see who would try out the samples, what the comments would be, and who would come back for more than one sample. Some people would grab 5 or 6 right away! My favorite were the older men who wanted to "shoot the breeze" while their wives shopped. They had the best comments...and stories.
Here's the recipe, we really enjoyed it!
