Seven Layer Greek Dip Recipe from J.J. Keeler

In I Hardly Ever Wash My Hands: The Other Side of OCD, I am the main character – and therefore not a cook. However, like the Seven Layer Greek Dip, the anxiety disorder Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) also has many layers. What you see on the surface is not always what is truly going on underneath. Also, you eat this with your hands so if you hardly wash them too, you might want to this time around.
