Layered Mexican Dip

This is an easy party appetizer and can be made in a matter of minutes. Tastes great when served with any type of chips. I served this along with some tortilla chips. This recipe is semi-homemade since I used mostly storebought ingredients and just assembled them before serving. Looks beautiful and colorful when served in a glass bowl.

Ingredients (Makes several servings)

Refried beans / Any cooked and mashed beans - 1 cup
Sour cream - 2 tablespoon
Shredded cheese (any variety) - 2 spoons
Salsa - 2 tablespoons
Avocado - 1 deseeded and diced
Tomato - 1 medium sized ripe one
Olives - a few sliced
Lemon Juice - 1 spoon
Salt to taste

Prepare all the above ingredients. If you are cooking your own beans make sure it is cooked really well, add salt and mash it into a smooth paste. If using canned refried beans, microwave the beans for a minute and mash it well.

In a glass bowl, take the bean and spread the cheese over it. Microwave for a few seconds until the cheese melts. Top it off with the sour cream, salsa, diced avocado, tomatoes and olives. Season with salt and drizzle with lemon juice.

Serve immediately. Assemble the dip only before serving because the avocado tends to oxidize soon and change color. This is a very forgiving recipe, you can add more or less of any of the ingredients according to your tastes.

Serve with chips.
