refried beans

Layer Bean Dip


I love this dip because it’s so easy to make, it’s yummy, and I typically have all of the ingredients on hand anyway!  Made it for a potluck last Friday night.  Ran by the store on the way home to grab tortilla chips and whipped it up in five minutes.


2 cans of refried beans

Taco seasoning or taco sauce

16 ozs. sour cream

Guacamole (optional)

1 jar of salsa

Shredded mexican blend cheese

1 jar of sliced black olives

Four green onions, sliced

Tortilla chips

Heat the beans in a pan and add taco seasoning or taco sauce (I had some leftover Del Taco sauce packets which worked great).  Let cool and spread in a square pan.  Add a layer of sour cream, a layer of guacamole (optional), and a layer of salsa.  Top with cheese, then black olives and green onions.

You can make ahead.  Store in the refrigerator until potluck time.  Serve with tortilla chips!
