seven layer dip


I know this has absolutely nothing to do with PA, but I agreed to bring a mexican style seven layer dip to an adult gathering that we are going to. I had planned to get this recipe from my stepmother, but I am having trouble getting ahold of her, does any one here know how to make such a thing?

I have about six different recipies but these two are the simplest (it's best if refrigerated over night and can be served chilled or at room temp):

7-Layer Mexican Dip

1 large can ( 30 or 40 oz. ) can refried beans 16 oz. fresh or ready made guacamole 12 oz. sour cream 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes 1/2 cup green onions 1 ( 2 1/2 0z. ) can black olives Taco Seasoning for a spicier dip (mix 1 tbsp to a whole pkg depending on taste preference with the sour cream) Tortilla chips

Layer beans on the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch pan. Layer remaining ingredients, except tortilla chips, in order given. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Serve with tortilla chips.

or if you want beef in it:

Ingredients 1 1/2 pounds ground beef (seasoned with taco seasoning if you wish) 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans 4 cups shredded Mexican-style cheese, divided 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream 1 cup guacamole 1 cup salsa 1 (6 ounce) can black olives, chopped 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes 1/2 cup chopped green onions

Directions 1 In a large skillet, brown ground beef. Set aside to drain and cool to room temperature. 2 Spread the beans into the bottom of a 9x13 inch serving tray that is about 1 1/2 inches deep. Sprinkle 2 cups of shredded cheese on top of beans. Sprinkle beef on top of cheese. Spread sour cream very slowly on top of beef. Spread guacamole on top of sour cream. Pour salsa over guacamole and spread evenly. Sprinkle remaining shredded cheese. Sprinkle black olives, tomatoes, and green onions on top. 3 You can serve this dish immediately, or refrigerate it over night and serve cold.

Or you can make your own variation of the above... changing the cheese, using lettuce... just pick seven ingredients used in tacos and other mexican dishes. These can also be served in bowls with thicker layers as opposed to a 9x13 pan)
