Seven Layer Dip and a WayFare Review





Okay this was just suppose to be a review on a new product I tried but I ended up going all out and made this amazing dip. The product I wanted to review is called WayFare "We Can't Say It's Cheese." I purchased it at my local Whole Foods and decided to go with the Mexi Cheddar flavor because I wanted to make this dip. They have four different flavors, if this one doesn't sound like it would be your fav ( cheddar spread, hickory cheddar, cheddar sauce and of course Mexi Cheddar ).

It tastes great as a dip alone with tortilla chips or you can use it with tons of different recipes, some that are listed on their site here. The price was $3.99 for an 8 oz container. Using this definitely did help to complete the taste of my dip. I don't think it would've been half as good without it. Try it if you happen to run across it at your local market.

For everyone that has been saying that they cannot find any in their area, I found this site that sells it but the sad news is that they only ship in the United States. I hope I helped some

Okay now for the seven layer dip. Here is what I put in mine

Ingredients
* 4 cups of refried beans ( love this recipe )
* vegan sour cream ( I used Tofutti sour cream )
* guacamole ( made from 2 avocados )
* pico de gallo salsa ( recipe here, pulsed a few times in the blender )
* cheddar sauce ( used the product above )
* diced tomatoes ( I used 2 roma tomatoes )
* chives
* 1/3 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese ( I used Daiya Cheddar )
* organic corn tortilla chips

Directions
1. Really easy, basically just layer each ingredient in small serving sized cups or in one large casserole dish.

  1. That is so beautiful. I love all the colors and textures. I have tried that cheese, and I agree it is good. I really like the hickory flavor one, it goes great with mustard.

  2. That looks SO delicious. I love seven layer dip, but when I make it, I've just been mixing chili powder or taco seasoning into Tofutti cream cheese to fill the "creamy part" requirement. This looks even better -- I can't wait to try Mexi Cheddar!

  3. Rose - I must try the hickory flavor next! It sounds so good as well

    Stephanie - Yay! I am glad you're willing to try it next time. Yeah, I would say its a lot better than just mixing sour cream. I hope you like it as much as I did : ]

  7. wayfare not-cheeses are super awesome, perhaps bested only by your presentation! i am now thinking of excuses for a mexican food dinner party, where everyone gets their own individual layer dip!

    (that will never happen. more likely, i'll make a huge batch and eat it all myself.)

  19. That's out of control! What a great idea! Scheese do a Mexican-style vegan cream cheese here in the UK, so I might have to give that a go for our next Big Night In! Ruby Rose xx
