10 Veggie Layer Dip

10 Veggie Layer Dip

Typically weekend posts are reserved for brunches and breakfasts here in the Macheesmo universe but I felt the need to post a massive appetizer dip for “The Big Game” tomorrow.

Here’s the thing with this dip: It’s colorful and actually not terrible for you. It’s mostly vegetables!

Of course, if you do what I did and eat it all by your damn self then it sort of defeats the purpose because you all of the sudden housed an entire bag of chips.

Anyway, this sucker is great at room temperature or chilled so make it whenever you want and serve it up to guests. I like to serve it on a large flat dish so you don’t have to dig a lot to get to the good stuff.
