I first experienced this seven layer dip some twenty-five years ago when my friend Gina Meadows brought it to a Mexican-themed Christmas Eve party in Arkansas. It’s a festive, almost geological concoction, fantastic then and now. Since then, I’ve seen this delicious room temperature dip at many potlucks (naturally enough—it’s the perfect informal party dish), especially in the South and Southwest. Though it’s a familiar player, there’s never any left. It’s often served in a glass pie pan, the better to accommodate its mountainousness.
