Seven Layer Dip

READY IN: 20mins

This is a recipe my grandmother always made as a very tasty appetizer. You can adjust the spiciness by using mild or hot salsa.

I found this recipe was not quite what I was looking for. I had expected something with a fresher taste, but this stuff wasn't bad. When I make this again, I'll put the taco seasoning in the refried beans and won't use salsa at all, but rather some diced tomatoes and green onions and green chilies. I used only a half pound of shredded cheese and it was more than enough. The dip isn't bad, however it has served as a starting point for what I am really looking for.
