This is not your ordinary 7 Layer Dip! It’s made in a skillet, served hot, and made with lots of beef, veggies, and cheese.
HOT 7-LAYER DIP
So what are you going to snack on while sipping a nice cold beer or margarita?
I have just the right thing for you today. (And if you are not fully satisfied, there are many more ideas at the bottom of the post as well.) This is an amazing, zesty, layered dip that is served hot. I’m sure you are familiar with the 7 Layer Dip that’s very popular. Well, I’ve created a little different version of it. Actually, it’s a very different version of it.
First of all, this dip is served hot. I seem to I prefer warm dips to cold. When I looked through my archives, I realized that I do make quite a few dips and most of them a hot. There is something about a warm, cheesy, gooey dip that is so much better than cold.
Second of all, this dip is layered with lots of chipotle chili pepper seasoned beef and topped with layers of veggies. Finally, it’s all covered in lots of gooey, cheese topped with a little more chipotle chili powder. ( I do recommend chipotle kind because it adds great smokey flavor.)
