2 – 16 ounce cans refried beans
1 cup bottled taco sauce
1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 – 8 ounce packages cream cheese softened
½ cup sour cream
6 tablespoons mayonnaise
½ teaspoon garlic powder
2 large avocados
1 medium onion chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 tomatoes seeded and chopped
1 cup olives sliced
1 cup sliced green onion
Stir together beans and taco sauce. Spread the bean mixture on the bottom of your serving platter. Next is the cheese, some people like to put ½ the cheese in the middle and the other ½ on top I put all the cheese in the middle over the bean layer. Next in a small bowl mix the cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise and garlic powder. Beat well until the mixture is smooth. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the cheese. In a food processor or blender combine avocado, onion and lemon juice and blend. Spread this mixture evenly over the cream cheese layer. Sprinkle tomato, olives, green onion and the remaining cheese on top if you saved ½ the cheese. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve with tortilla chips.
This is a mild version you can make it as spicy as you like by using hot taco sauce, or even hot sauce mixed with the taco sauce, more garlic powder or more onion.
