Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons homemade taco seasoning
  • 1 16-oz. can refried beans
  • 4 oz. (1/2 block) cream cheese
  • 4 oz. (1/2 container) sour cream
  • 1/2 cup guacamole (optional)
  • 1/2 16-oz. jar chipotle salsa (I like Trader Joe’s brand)
  • lettuce, chopped (optional)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1/2 3.8-oz. can sliced black olives, drained

Directions

  1. Combine taco seasoning and refried beans; stir well. Spread into bottom of rectangular baking pan.
  2. Combine softened cream cheese and sour cream. Spread on top of bean layer.
  3. Spread guacamole, if using, on top of cream layer.
  4. Spread salsa on top of guacamole, which helps prevent browning.
  5. Top with chopped lettuce, if using.
  6. Top entire layer of lettuce with cheese.
  7. Line up chopped tomatoes to resemble red stripes of the flag.
  8. Place sliced olives in top left corner to resemble stars of flag.

This classic dip is delicious served with your favorite organic corn chips. You can make the dip several hours in advance, but omit the lettuce to avoid sogginess.
