Whenever we had friends coming over after school my mom would whip out this bean dip. She would either layer it in a regular Pyrex mixing bowl so all of the layers would show or mix everything together with a topping of cheese and lettuce. Either way, it was amazing. She would always load it up with tons of veggies so we would end up getting our daily allowance in.
