Seven Layer Dip – Dip de Siete Capas

My mom worked as a teacher’s aide at our local school and every Holiday season all the teachers, aides and staff would host what they called a “pig out.”  Everyone was asked to bring one of their favorite pot luck dish. They would all gather in the teacher’s lounge for lunch where they would chat, laugh, and nibble through every dish.  My mom was always asked to bring her famous charro beans or Mexican rice.   Every year she would come home with a new recipe she had tried at the potluck jalapeno pepper jelly, pimento cheese, bacon wrapped jalapenos and seven layer dip.

She would scribble down the recipe, place it on the fridge and re-create it over the weekend.

Of course we kids love this idea something new, something different, something Texan.

Her years spent working as an aide is when Texan recipes slowly began making their way into our household.  And this is when we were introduced to seven layer dip.  Seven layers of goodness that we have enjoyed for years now.  Some years we jazz it up with fresh refried beans, homemade salsa and chunky guacamole or some years we baked it until bubbly then add the layer of sour cream or guacamole.  Or some years we leave it as it, as it was written, with canned bean dip and all.

Seven layers of goodness.
