Introduction: 7-Layer Taco Dip

Picture of 7-Layer Taco Dip
Years ago, one of my girlfriends was married to a chef who used to make this dip for all their parties.  They used to throw a lot of parties, too, so it was great!  Sadly, the marriage did not survive, but we still like to joke about how lucky she was to get custody of the 7-layer dip recipe!  It's so good!

INGREDIENTS:

1 can refried beans

1/2 packet of taco mix

2 ripe avocados, cubed

1/2 lime, juiced

1 small container of sour cream

1 jalapeno pepper, diced

1 onion, chopped

1 small can chopped green chilies

5 roma tomatoes, chopped

1 bar jalapeno jack cheese, grated

1 small can chopped black olives

Step 1: Mix Refried Beans and Taco Seasoning, Then Spread in the Bottom of a Pie Plate.

Step 4: Mix Chopped Jalapeno, Onion, Tomatoes and Green Chilies, Then Spread on Top of Sour Cream.

Step 6: Carefully Arrange Chopped Black Olives to Look Like a Jack-o-lantern Face.

That's all there is to it...just chill and serve with your favorite tortilla chips.  You can make it a day ahead, but wait to put the olives on, so the cheese doesn't get soggy.

This is great! I am making it for our Halloween Party we are hosting this year! p.s. I count 7 layers if you count the olives as a layer!

Yes, it's a test to make sure everyone is paying attention. You pass! Just kidding...it's a big 'ol recipe title FAIL. I missed it. Was never good at math anyway. ;)
