Six-Layer Dip

It is officially basketball season again.  I am a huge Bulls fan, and so happy to have them (and the rest of the NBA, really) back.  For game nights and afternoons, chips and dip are the perfect complement to basketball’s greatest.  I have been making this dip for a few years now, and have brought it to super bowl and NBA playoff parties.  It is really easy to prep beforehand and then pop in the oven of your host.  Make it for your next basketball/hockey/football potluck.  No one will notice its vegan.

Go Bulls!
