Bringing the Tex & Mex together for a favorite!

Post Mother's Day I offer this family favorite as a tribute to my own two daughters who will one day make this for their families! No, this isn't offered on any menu in Mexico but North of the Border it would be hard to find anyone who doesn't have a version of this recipe.

Texas Bean Dip, aka: 7 Layer Dip
1 can Refried Beans, any type
8 oz. sour cream
3 ripe avocados, mashed and lightly salted
1 package of taco seasoning mix
½ c. mayonnaise
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 c. grated cheese
¼ c. green onion
¼ c. black olives
1 tomato, diced
Spread beans onto a small platter. Mix mashed avocado with lemon juice and spread on top of bean dip. Mix sour cream, taco mix, and mayonnaise together and spread on top of avocado mix.
Top with grated cheese, tomatoes, green onion and black olives. Serve with Tortilla chips.

I had to smile when I read this - it's been too long since we made this dip. I think as soon as JK sees it, I will be conned into buying the ingredients!
