Recipe: Smoky Layered Mediterranean Dip #TabascoFlavorBowl

A couple weeks ago I participated in the Tabasco Flavor Bowl with House Party. I'm not big on Tabasco but I thought it was worth a shot. I have to say - it opened my eyes (and my sinuses). 

I made quite a few recipes from guacamole & salsa to beer cheese smokies - but my favorite was this Smoky Layered Mediterranean Dip

If you haven't heard of House Party - it's sponsored by different brands. You apply to host a party - then you invite your friends - and you have a party and there are usually some small party favors and activities to do while you try whatever product they're sponsoring. I enjoy them but the only negative is they don't provide much for the actual party - so all the food, etc. is on you. This was more fun than most - we had a good time with the props and there was a trivia contest as well.

The dip was really simple - it's sort of the "semi-homemade" route - which is great when I had 3 recipes to put together. It made me look at Tabasco in a whole new way! The Chipotle tabasco was my favorite of the two and really added a new flavor without taking away from the hummus.
