Layer it on thick with this dip

If you're planning a Super Bowl party this weekend you can't forget the dip. And we don't mean your brother-in-law.

Family.com and Anne Coleman concocted a seven-layer dip to satisfy scores of chip-eaters.

Seven layers add up to one delicious dip that is a favorite everywhere. The best part of this recipe is that you can substitute any fat percentage in the beans and dairy products without affecting the flavor of the finished product.
