Mom's Seven Layer Dip | @thefauxmartha

I don’t know much about football although I grew up in a football watching family. But I do know that the Super Bowl is always the first weekend in February. Right? And that food, lots of food is consumed. And maybe beer too although I never jumped on that bandwagon. I’m a wine girl. A cheap wine girl. Sorry Dad.   

I also know that my mom may make the best Seven Layer Dip this side of the Mississippi. And since she lives on the other side of the Mississippi from me, I think that means we have the continent covered. I’m being overdramatic. I know. But believe me when I tell you her secret ingredient will blow your football-watching, chip-dipping, crowd-cheering mind.

Off to buy taco seasoning. Oops, there went the secret.
