Tasty Tuesdays- 7 layer bean dip

This is so delicious, my husband begs me to make it. Here is what you need:

Refried beans (I often use the lower fat ones and my husband doesn't seem to notice.)
Sour Cream, 8 oz
Taco seasoning packet
Avocados
Olives
Cheese (You are supposed to use cheddar but I use Colby jack because it has a little more flavor)
Tomatoes
Green Onions

Take a large dish, I use a pie plate, and spread the refried beans in a layer on the bottom. You can do a little or a lot, that is up to you. I actually, make half of mine without refried beans at all. If you know me, you know that I don't so much like to look at beans, let alone eat them and yes, down here next to the border that makes people think I am crazy.

Take 8 oz of sour cream and mix it with HALF of the seasoning packet. Then spread that on top of the beans. Next comes your shredded cheese. Then chopped tomatoes, olives, avocados and green onions.

You can also come up with your 7th layer, buy using guacamole that you put on after the sour cream and before the cheese, but in our family we prefer the avocado chunks so that people who aren't avocado lovers can pick them off. Don't look at me on that one. I LOVE avocados!

Then serve as a dip with tortilla chips. Want to make your own delicious chips without all the work? Go here.

Yum! Our 7 layer dip usually ends up as about 3. We mix the sour cream and salsa together, and we don't use olives of guacamole. Mine is usually beans, salsa/sour cream, green onions, and cheese. Mark's is beans, salsa, and cheese. :P
