My fiancé has “food days” at work where people pitch in and bring in food for his team. He has asked me to make things before but since I pretty much refuse to make unhealthy food (even dessert), I did not want to spend time figuring out how to make something better. But now since I have this blog, the more chances I have to come up with new recipes and have people, especially strangers, taste test them, the better!
So he came home one evening and asked me to make a seven layer dip. I have never made a seven layer dip before, but I have eaten it (once or twice). At first I was worried, “I’ve never made that before! What if it turns out horrible and people will never want his fiancé to make anything ever again?” But I was happy to figure it out. After all, I was only helping him eat healthier at work, right?
This dip (pictured) was my original idea but what he brought to work was actually slightly different because he asked me to include a couple of other ingredients. I will post that variation soon, which is actually an eight layer dip. Both versions got great responses though. I like this version of the healthy seven layer dip better because it uses more fresh ingredients.
