8 Layer Vegan Dip with Homemade Tortilla Chips
It was one of those rare occasions when I actually had the house to myself for the night. I wanted something quick, easy and light for dinner that I could eat while catching up on some work. This was perfect because it makes enough to have leftovers for lunch or snacks for the next few days. It's also a great recipe to have on hand for parties and pot lucks!
