Review: Individual Seven Layer Dip
Posted by Chandeen Santos
For my husband's birthday this year I made Individual Seven Layer Dips by The Girl Who Ate Everything.
I found the recipe on Pinterest and have been quite keen to try it. They look amazing and I have always been bothered by the fact that when you try to eat a seven layer dip from a big bowl it makes a big mess and is just not that good. All-in-all this looked like the perfect solution.
I was very happy with the results. I followed Christy's recipe almost completely. I didn't have time to make my own guacamole so I went to a local store that sold fresh guacamole. I am really not a fan of that stuff you buy in the grocery stores that come in a vacuum bag and is florescent green.
I also put a little less of the taco seasoning because I only had hot and did not want it to be too hot for the guests.
Overall, this was a easy recipe. The most time consuming part is just assembling them. I put all the cups out and just did each layer in a assembly line fashion.
The dip was a big hit with the guests. The combination of flavors is really quite good. I, myself, ate the leftover dip for about three days. They made a great snack.
I found that the dip kept very well. The layers seal each other in quite well and even the guacamole does not get discolored. In the future, I will prepare the recipe the day before. Just keep in mind that the tortilla chips get soggy when placed in the dip, so save that until the day of.
In the end, this is a great appetizer to make for any party. I might try making more little layers of food, maybe strawberries and pound cake or chocolate pudding and other yummy stuff. I'll have to think about it.
Go, make this recipe, and know that it is supper yummy.
