This recipe was very popular back in my teenaged cast-party days, when my mom would make it for us. I recall getting the recipe from Mike Everheart's mom, I think. I love this stuff! I usually make a double or 1.5 recipe, and keep the extras at home for myself. ;) It's hard to believe how much folks are paying for these layered dips in the stores... it tastes better when you make your own!
