I’m sure everyone has their own version of “7 layer dip.” I got a recipe many years ago from my sister called Mexican 8 Layer Dip. I haven’t made it in a long time. But I made some this morning for our Super Bowl dinner tonight. I think I ended up with 7 layers. I’ll post it as I made it. I love this recipe/idea because you can basically add whatever you/your family likes. I was also happy to finally have a chance to use one of my new serving dishes I got for Christmas. It was perfect for this!

1 can refried beans
