Yummy 7 Layer Bean Dip!!

We love this dip! I received a recipe book
"The Mormon Family Cookbook"
22 1/2 years ago for our wedding. Funny how something can be a family favorite for so long. I am often asked to bring this to parties, family dinners etc.
It is very simple and easy to double, which I do as a rule! You can never have too much!
This is the doubled recipe.
  • 2-cans (16 oz) refried beans (add 1/2 tsp Adobo or garlic powder)
  • 1-16 oz tub sour cream
  • 1-package (1 oz) taco seasoning mix
  • 3-large ripe avocados, pitted, peeled and mashed
  • 1-tsp lemon juice
  • 1-tsp Crystal hot sauce (Tabasco works also)
  • -pepper and salt to taste
  • 2-cups shredded Cheddar or Mexican cheese blend (8 oz)
  • 1-can (2.25 oz) sliced ripe olives, drained (1/2 cup)
  • 1-medium tomato, diced (3/4 cup)
  • 4-green onions sliced
  • Tortilla chips
  1. Mix refried beans and adobo (or garlic powder). Spread on platter.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together sour cream and taco seasoning. Carefully spread over bean mixture, stopping 1" from edges.
  3. Add lemon juice, Crystal hot sauce and salt and pepper to avocados, mix.
  4. Carefully spread over sour cream mixture, leaving 1" from sides.
  5. Layer cheese, tomatoes, olives and green onions.
  6. Serve with tortilla chips
