  • 115.5 oz can refried beans
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes (or salsa)
  • ¾ cup black olives, sliced
  • 1 cup guacamole
  • 1 cup shredded cheese- Mexican blend
  • (Optional 1 Tblsp Taco Seasoning – we prefer it without)
  • Tortilla Chips


  1. Combine refried beans and water in a bowl until smooth, thinning them out makes them much easier to dip (add the taco seasoning if you like your beans spicy).
  2. If you are using tomatoes instead of premade salsa go ahead and chop them to your desired size now ( I do both but since it is nearly summer I am taking advantage of my fresh produce).
  3. Place a spoon in the sour cream, beans, and guacamole- you don’t want to cross contaminate or you will mess up your pretty layers.
  4. Scoop a heaping spoonful of refried beans, smooth with a spoon.
  5. Continue the layer-guacamole, sour cream, diced tomatoes/salsa, lettuce, black olives, and shredded cheese. Smoothing wet layers with a spoon.
  6. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  7. Serve with tortilla chips. Makes 8 -9 oz. cups.
