It’s Picnic time! We love a picnic in our house; the kids regularly have one in the back garden! But group picnics make me a bit nervous. There are so many people with dips, spreads, crumbs and a whole host of ingredients that could make J and Miss A poorly that I am constantly on guard. One of our difficulties is always dips. Most shop bought ones have milk, sesame or egg in them so we have to steer clear. So today, I’ve made you a fabulous gluten free, vegan 7 layer dip, free from all the top 14 allergens!
Yes, you heard that right – 7 amazing layers of deliciousness with no milk, egg, gluten, sesame or any other top 14 allergens.
This dip is a classic in the USA and inspired by Mexican cuisine, so perfect for Cinco De Mayo tomorrow.
I loooove Mexican food! When I used to work on a cruise ship sailing to Mexico every week I got a real taste for it and now when we go back to visit Mr C’s family in Texas, I can’t wait for a good dose of Tex Mex.
So, I’ve brought a little taste of Texas to the green, green grass of home! For a picnic, this dip works perfectly packaged up in jam jars.
