Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Layer #1: Spread the entire can of refried beans on a dinner-sized plate/platter.
  2. Layer #2: Mash the avocados with a little fresh lime juice & salt to taste. Spread avocado evenly over refried beans.
  3. Layer #3: Mix the taco xeasoning into the container of sour cream. Spread this evenly over the avocado layer.
  4. Layer #4: Chopped green onion.
  5. Layer #5: Sliced black olives.
  6. Layer #6: Chopped tomatoes--I like to remove the seeds before chopping so it does not turn into 7-Layer Soup.
  7. Layer #7: Freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese.
  8. Serve with Nacho Chips--I like to get the nacho chips from a local Mexican restaurant.
