Ahhh the infamous 7 layer dip.  This stuff is always the first thing to disappear at parties, have you ever noticed that?  People tend to dive into it within a millisecond of it being set out on the table.  I’m a fan of dips in general, but this one has a special place in my heart.  I love Mexican food and this dip has everything I love rolled into one snack.  It’s perfect for devouring with all of your friends and family while watching the basketball tournament games on T.V.  Speaking of basketball…do you fill out a bracket?  I have to say, I have never done one but I did grow up watching a lot of the games with my dad and brothers.  Ultimately, I’m all about the snack food when it comes to most sports…you know…the important stuff.

Seven Layer Mexican dip recipe for Cinco de Mayo or game day.

Mexican Fiesta Seven Layer Appetizer Dip using Rotel.

I was in a dip kind of mood and picked up a can of this Ro*Tel goodness while doing my spontaneous shopping at Walmart. You know the kind of shopping where you go in the store for one thing and come out with a whole cart full? Yeah, that kind of shopping trip.

I decided to jazz up the refried bean layer when making the Fiesta 7 Layer Dip by adding in half a can of drained Ro*Tel tomatoes.  This was a great decision because it added so much to that particular layer.  I find that when this dip sits out at parties for hours upon hours it sometimes can get a little dry.  The Ro*Tel solved that problem! Boom.  It also inevitably enhanced the flavor and texture of the bean layer.
