5 Layer Mezze Dip | http://saltandwind.com

This year, rather than be the 5th guest who brings a gut bomb of a dip to the Super Bowl Party, surprise everyone. Instead of a 5 layer Mexican dip, mix it up with this 5 layer Mezze Dip. It has the richness you want from the hummus and red pepper dip, plus some heat, to the cool creamy yogurt and bursts of fresh herbs and pomegranates. It'll be such a big hit that even if your team doesn’t win, you can at least be proud of your dip.

  • 1/2 recipe Red Pepper Muhammara Dip

Then top with tabbouleh, muhammara, tzatziki, and then finish with the radishes and pomegranates.Chill for an hour and then serve with pita chips.
