My best friend gave me this layered bean dip recipe years ago and it’s always a crowd pleaser. It has a kick and everybody loves it. Do you have some Super Bowl recipes to share? This one falls right in there with savory appetizers. Mmmm…
I’ve made this recipe to bring to lots of potlucks and gatherings with friends and family. People always ask for the recipe because it’s different from the standard seven layer bean dip.
You can make your own tortilla chips – have you done that before? Soooooo good.
