Mexican Layer Dip

October 11, 2010

Alternately titled: How to get rid of things in your fridge: Mexican style


1 can refried beans

1 package taco seasoning

1 cup sour cream

1 cup guacamole

shredded lettuce (optional)

2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese

1 large tomato, chopped (I did not use an entire tomato because one of my guests didn’t like a lot of tomato)



1)  In a small pan, heat refried beans on medium-low heat (I have a weird thing about beans straight out of the can, plus heating them makes it easier to spread on your platter)

2)  Mix in taco seasoning

3)  Smooth beans evenly on your platter or serving dish of choice

4)  Add a layer of sour cream, guacamole, shredded lettuce, cheese, and tomato



You can’t really mess up a Mexican layer dip. Feel free to add: pico de gallo, black olives, peppers, green chiles, green onions, or salsa. This particular dish was made with items in my fridge that needed to be eaten soon, so it was a great way to finish off that bag of shredded lettuce and cheese before it went bad.
