Everyone likes layer dip. It’s easy to make for any party. It’s great to make the day before and let rest in the fridge over night for more intense flavor.
1 Cup cooked pinto beans
3 TB taco seasoning (recipe follows)
4 oz chopped green chilies
2 avocados, sliced thin
1/2 Cup chopped black olives
8 oz salsa
8 oz sour cream
8 oz shredded cheddar or Monterrey jack
Layer 1: Place pintos and taco seasoning in your food processor. Blend to creamy. If the mixture seems a little dry, add a little lime juice to thin it out.
Layer 2: Spread chopped green chilies over beans.
Layer 3: Arrange avocado slices over chilies. Sprinkle with salt and lime juice.
Layer 4: Add black olives over avocado.
Layer 5: Spread out salsa
Layer 6: Spread out sour cream
Layer 7: Sprinkle over shredded cheese
Serve with chips, crackers, veggies, or anything that will scoop this out. Like a spoon!
You can use store bought taco seasoning, but it may contain gluten, fillers, chemicals, or non-food ingredients. Weird!
