Cajun Seven Layer Dip

I’ve talked about my husband's Louisiana roots before, so I am thrilled to be able to work with Jay D’s Molasses Mustard. Jay Ducote was my favorite Food Network Star contestant. I loved the dishes he created and his personality. I hope that you find my Cajun Seven Layer Dip with Jay D’s Molasses Mustard delicious with all those wonderful Cajun flavors you desire.
