Seven Layer Dip

Seven Layer Dip

Although this dip is classic with tortilla chips, it's also great scooped up with slices of jicama, thick strips of bell peppers, or whole endive leaves. There are plenty of ways to make this recipe your own — try your favorite salsa or pico de gallo instead of the tomato mixture, try other types of cheese, or try adding a layer of diced chicken, shredded lettuce, or sliced scallions.
