  • Refried Beans – 1 can (16 oz)

  • Guacamole – 2 cups, freshly made

  • Sour Cream – 1 cup

  • Taco Seasoning – 1 packet

  • Salsa – 1 cup, your choice of heat

  • Cheddar Cheese – 1 cup, shredded

  • Black Olives – ½ cup, sliced

  • Green Onions – ½ cup, chopped

  • Tomatoes – 2, diced

  • Jalapeños – 2, sliced (optional for extra heat)

  • Tortilla Chips – for serving


  • Laying the Foundation with Refried Beans: Start by spreading the refried beans evenly at the bottom of your serving dish. This layer provides a hearty base, ensuring every scoop is substantial.
  • The Guacamole Layer: Gently spread the freshly made guacamole over the beans. The creaminess of the avocados combined with the tang of lime and the kick of jalapeños ensures a burst of flavors.
  • Sour Cream with a Twist: In a separate bowl, mix the sour cream and taco seasoning until well combined. Spread this seasoned sour cream over the guacamole layer, introducing a tangy zest to the mix.
  • Salsa Delight: Pour your choice of salsa over the sour cream layer. Whether you prefer it mild, medium, or hot, this layer adds a juicy texture and a spicy punch.
  • Cheesy Goodness: Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese evenly over the salsa. As it melts, it binds the layers together, adding a rich and gooey texture.
  • Olives & Onions: Scatter the sliced black olives and chopped green onions over the cheese. Their contrasting flavors add depth and a touch of freshness.
  • Tomato & Jalapeño Finish: Top off your dip with diced tomatoes and sliced jalapeños. This final layer adds a refreshing crunch and an optional fiery kick.
  • Serve and Enjoy: Once your masterpiece is complete, serve it with tortilla chips and watch as it becomes the star of any gathering.
