7- Layer Dip

7 - Layer dip is so good!
A great appetizer to make for parties, or fun get-togethers with family and friends.
One thing that I don't like about the traditional 7 layer dip is the way you just plop the can of beans into the pan and them spread them around. That process just grosses me out. :-)
So I heat them in a pan and add a few yummy ingredients to make the beans a bit tastier.
The Pico De Gallo also makes this dip just that much tastier. You can see my Pico De Gallo recipe here.
This dip should be eaten with in 24 hours of making, it does not keep well after that.
I have never had many leftover past 24 hours anyways. This dip is eaten up fast!
