Personally, one of my favorite dishes to bring to parties is 7-layer bean dip, but I hate the stuff that comes pre-made from the store. It always come out bland! I find what really changes this one is mixing the taco seasoning into the beans. It gives them an extra kick without having to throw in an eighth layer!
This recipe is super-kid friendly, especially if you buy pre-shredded cheese and lettuce. No knives necessary! Just a spatula and a glass baking dish!
