Cinco De Mayo Layered Bean Dip

Easy layered bean dip! Perfect for Cinco De Mayo festivities! The best part....it is fresh! Made with homemade taco seasoning. No preservatives or artificial flavors and coloring.

When shopping for my ingredients, I have made it a habit to READ THE LABLES! You won't believe the junk they put into our food. I have found that Trader Joe's, Whole Foods and Nugget are pretty safe. It is always best to read the labels. If you can't understand what the ingredients are, safe to say, not good for you.

1 can refried beans (Trader Joe's beans only use water and salt to preserve!! Good stuff).
1-2 avocados, mashed
1 large roma tomato
1/2-3/4 cup green onion, sliced
1/2-3/4 cup sliced black olives ( I buy these fresh at the nugget and remove the seeds).
1-1 1/2 cups shredded cheese
1/2 cup light sour cream (set aside)

1/2 cup salsa (optional)

Taco Seasoning Recipe
Adapted from Family Fresh Meals

1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Mix all seasoning together. Add 1-2 tablespoons to the 1/2 cup sour cream.

In a baking dish 8-9", spread the refried beans. Next spread the mashed avocado, then the taco seasoned sour cream mixture. Add the cheese, green onions, tomatoes and olives.

Chill for 1-2 hours before serving. ENJOY! with your favorite tortilla chips.
