Excellent for summer parties. Easy and delicious. This recipe is based on a recipe from


1 12-oz can Refried beans; fat free if desired
2 each Tomatoes; diced-remove seeds and pulp
1 bunch Green onions; sliced
1 small can Chopped black olives; drained (optional)
1 cup Prepared guacamole; or my guacamole salad recipe posted on bigoven (omit tomatoes)
1 package Taco seasoning
1 cup Sour cream; fat free if desired
2 cups Mexican blend cheese; Shredded
Pickled jalapeno slices; optional-for garnish

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



Mix taco seasoning with sour cream in a small bowl. In an 8 x 8 baking dish or pie dish, spread the beans over the bottom of the pan. Layer with tomatoes, then onions, olives, guacamole, sour cream mixture, and sprinkle cheese on top. Garnish with a few jalapeno slices on top, if desired. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve with tortilla chips and watch it disappear!


I sometimes make my own refried beans by taking the leftovers from a pot of beans and drianing most of the juice, mashing beans with a potato masher, and frying them in about a teaspoon of Criso until they are heated through and slightly thickened. Let them cool before making the dip. They are so much better than the canned refried beans.
