Layered Taco Dip

Yum. I love taco dip. I have two recipes that I like to make and decided to combine them to create a new one. You can warm this in the oven for a little while if you like but I just left it at room temperature. Feel free to add/change any of the ingredients to suit your tastes. That's what I did! :)

1/2 package taco seasoning mix
1 can refried beans
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
16 ounces sour cream
1 jar salsa
1 tomato, chopped
1 bunch chopped green onion
1 small can sliced black olives
2 avocados, lime juice, salt - to make guacamole - or you can buy store bought
1 bag shredded cheddar cheese, or 2 cups
tortilla chips


Spread refried beans in a 9x13 baking dish. Combine sour cream, cream cheese and the taco seasoning. I kept adding a little of the seasoning and tasted it until I had the flavor I wanted. Spread the sour cream mixture over the beans.

I made the guacamole with 2 avocados, lime juice and salt. Again, I just tasted it as I went and until I was happy with the consistency and flavor. Spread guacamole on top of the sour cream mixture.

Add sliced black olives and chopped tomato.

I didn't use a whole jar of salsa. I would say I ended up using about half of the jar. I bought a thicker salsa, Pace Picante I think so it wouldn't make the dip watery.

Then add shredded cheese to cover. Sprinkle the top with chopped green onion. Serve with tortilla chips.

Where are the jalapenos?!! Sounds great, but we might add some hot peppers!

We were taking it to a party and some of the kids like taco dip so I didn't want it to be too spicy. :) Hope you enjoy it!
