Laura’s Seven Layer Dip


It wouldn’t be a Super Bowl without a good dip and this 7 Layer dip is a fan favorite.  This is my twist on the classic dip. Most recipes use a combination of sour cream with taco seasoning,  but I like to make mine using ranch dip!  I also made it this time in individual cups.  They look so cute and make sure there is no double dipping.  However, there is a down side to the cups.

The recipe makes 8 individual cups but the amount in each cup is really too much for 1 serving.  One cup really should be shared.  It was really too much for one person to eat all by themselves.  So I have included instructions on how to make them in the cups and how to make it in one large dish.  The individual sized dips need to be made in the 9 oz tumbler cups because you need the top of the cup to be large enough to dip into.  Whether you go for the individual cups or the party sized platter – it will be devoured.
