We've got a lot of experience with snacks. In fact, it could be argued that most of our meals are just several snacks thrown together on a plate. As such, we take the matter very seriously — especially when throwing a party. Food is as vital to a proper girls' night out as the drinks, so it's important to find the perfect recipe.
So, for a little help in the matter, we turned to GNO expert Elizabeth Banks. She's thrown more than a few shindigs and has a go-to recipe that never fails partygoers. Unsurprisingly, her favorite dish is dip — Cowboy Caviar dip, to be exact. It's laughably easy to put together, but the final product is nothing to scoff at. She shared the how-to for this crowd-pleaser, so all you have to do is add a few friends, a little booze, and off you go. Just don't forget the chips.
