Seven Layer Bean Dip

7 Layer Bean Dip

Okay so it isn’t the healthiest appetizer, but the family loves it and is a great dish to add to a party or family gathering.


2 cans refried pinto beans

4 avocados mashed

1 lemon juiced

Sea salt and pepper

2 cups sour cream

1 tablespoon taco seasoning

4 cups sharp cheddar cheese shredded

4-5 large tomatoes chopped

1 bunch scallions, sliced

1 can sliced olives drained

Spread the beans on the bottom of a 9 x 13 dish. Mix together the mashed avocados, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. Spread over the beans. Mix together the sour cream and taco seasoning. Spread over the guacamole. Shred the cheese and place over top the sour cream layer. Then add the tomatoes, scallions and olives. Serve with organic corn chips.
