Super Bowl

Getting ready for SuperBowl XLIII?   Going to Tampa this weekend to check it out?  What — no??   But you’re thinking about having some friends over to watch the game?   What – no??   Thinking about having some friends over to avoid watching the game?   Well — whatever!!   Either way you may need some snacks — here’s one of my favorites to get you started whether it’s game day – or any day!  (check out the snack books after the recipe for more great idea’s!!)

7 Layer Guacamole Dip

What you’ll need:
- 2 cans of bean dip
- 1 cup onion (chopped)
- 1 1/2 cups guacamole dip (see note below)
- Sour cream mix (see recipe below)
- 2 cup fresh plum tomatoes (chopped)
- 6 ounces black olives(chopped)
- 8 ounces cheddar cheese (shredded)

So easy you won’t believe it! All you need to do is layer the ingredients above in the order you read them. For instance, place a nice layer of the bean dip on the bottom of a glass bowl, followed by a layer of the chopped onion, etc…

Your dip will look beautiful through the glass bowl and should be topped with the shredded cheese.

If you don’t want to use prepared guacamole, make your own. It tastes better in my opinion, although there are some good frozen guacamole dips you can buy. Just make sure to completely unfreeze the dip before layering.

Homemade Guacamole:
- 3 ripe avocados
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice

- Dash of Tabasco sauce
- salt and pepper (to taste)

Simply mash the peeled avocados with the other ingredients to make your own guacamole.

Sour Cream Mix:
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 envelope of taco seasoning

Mix all the ingredients together to add to the layer dip in the order specified above.
