Recipe by **Tinkerbell**
This is a recipe adapted from a friend i knew in the mid 80's. The original recipe included chopped tomatoes, but i found the dip too soupy with them. I leave out the tomatoes and serve with salsa instead. This is also really great the next day if you leave out the lettuce as well. Adding browned and drained ground beef to the beans will make this a meal.
- 1 can refried beans (regular or spicy)
- 1 packet taco seasoning mix
- 2 cups sour cream
- 2 ripe avocados
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- Tabasco sauce (optional)
- 1 cup shredded lettuce
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1⁄2 cup sliced green onion
- 1 can black olives, sliced
