If you do make this in advance, set it out about a half hour before serving so that some of the chill is taken off. This Seven Layer Dip assembles perfectly in a colorful Fiesta 9 inch by 13 inch baking dish. Readers may also enjoy John Raven's article on chips and dips and our own recipe for guacamole.
