  • Spread beans in a rectangular casserole dish (9x13-inch). You could use chili instead, as well.

  • Spread salsa over sour cream/cream cheese layer.
  • Sprinkle cheese over salsa.
  • Add peppers, tomatoes, and green onions in layers. Top with jalapeño peppers or olives, if using. You can also put these on the side, so your guests can choose to add them or not.

  1. I made this for a party at work and nearly everyone liked it. The proportions seemed pretty good except that there seemed to be an excessive amount of the cream cheese/ sour cream mixture. I ended up throwing away about 1/4 of this mixture. It is always nice to have a recipe that can be easily customized i.e. more or less spiciness, more or less vegetables, etc.
  2. WOW Kat, this is sooooo good! It is creamy and full of flavour! So good for veggie dipping! YUM! I used my own home-made refried beans and made my own salsa using bell peppers, tomato sauce and chili powder. I luved the combination of veggies and cheese in this with a great bite from the optional jalapeno (I used a fresh one, though). Omitted the olives, but otherwise stuck to your recipe and loved it! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this treat with us! Made and reviewed for When it's hot, when it's not an event in the Diabetic Forum
  3. This is a very good layered dip. I took it with a bag of tortilla chips to our small group meeting tonight. The only thing I did differently was that I served the jalepenos on the side because I was afraid that with the salsa it would be too much heat. Next time I will go ahead and include some of them in the layers. It was a hit. Makes a good size amount. MADE FOR SPRING PAC 2010


I'm a now vegan who used to make one heck of a souvlaki. I love cooking, I was a huge fan of Moosewood and Molly Katzen prior to going vegan (although that has nothing to do with my choosing the name Katzen - that's just what my German Grandma has called me all my life.) Aside from cooking, I also love scuba diving, cycling, politics, and reading.
