7-layer, tostada dip, walking taco...whatever you call it, it's the ideal dip to bring to a BBQ or potluck. Layers of refried beans, spiced sour cream, guacamole, chopped lettuce, tomato, green onions and sprinkles of freshly grated cheddar and crumbled cotija for a salty treat. Add green chiles, jalapenos, or chopped olives to give it your own twist.
