      Cheesy dips like this tend to disappear quick in my house, so I'll take your advice and double up the quantities in this 7 layer dip recipe.

      Ya, guacamole really is the key to this recipe. If you like guacamole as much as Amy, Duce, and myself you may want to make it yourself, as opposed to buying the store-bought stuff. Here is the recipe I use to make my guacamole

      I love guacamole too Amy! Does anybody have a good recipe for fresh guacamole, because I would love to use some ripe advacados and serve this dip the right way on Super Bowl Sunday.

      This sounds great! My sister makes a similar dip, but without the guacamole. I LOVE guacamole, so this recipe trumps hers for sure. Thanks for sharing!
