Seven-layer dip

25 May

This is another family recipe.  This version is actually an 8-layer dip, but I named it a 7-layer dip because that’s the traditional name for it.  I don’t know where this version originated from, but it’s one of the best versions I’ve tasted.  I usually prefer elements of a dish to be made from scratch, but this version is a winner and a definite crowd-pleaser just as it is.

1 can re-fried bean dip (Frito lays kind)
3 avocados, mashed with lemon or lime juice
8 oz. sour cream
1/2 packet taco seasoning
1 bunch scallions, chopped
1 pack shredded cheddar cheese
1 large tomato, diced
1 can chopped black olives
1 bunch cilantro

1.  Spread bean dip over a platter.  Cover with mashed avocados, spread evenly.
2.  Mix together sour cream and taco seasoning and spread over avocados.
3.  Next, sprinkle scallions, tomato, olives, and cilantro over first three layers.  Finish off with shredded cheese.  Serve with chips.
