Mexican Layer Dip

Mexican Layer dip is one of my favorite dips ever. Its so versatile. It's a meal, a snack or a midnight treat. You really can't go wrong with it. I'ts just a bundle of YUMMINESS all wrapped up in a pretty presentation. It serves a large crowd and leaves everyone wanting more. Serve it with a bag of tortilla chips at your next family gathering and YOUR dish will be the hit of the party!

Mexican Layer Dip

1-2 cans refried beans (amount depends on how much you like re-fried beans)_
1 package taco seasoning
1 16oz guacamole (your favorite brand)
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can corn, well drained
Diced tomatoes
Diced red onion
Grated Cheese
Diced Avocado
Sour Cream
Tortilla Chips

Stir refried beans and taco seasoning together in a mixing bowl, until smooth. Spread refried bean mixture in the bottom of a 9x13" baking pan. Spread guacamole onto bean mixture then add black beans, corn, diced tomatoes, diced onions and grated cheese. Just before serving (or on individual servings) add avocado and a dollop of sour cream if desired (refer to NOTE below).

*NOTE- I like to dice the avocado up and let each person put what they want on their serving...this prevents the entire dip from being ruined if it doesn't all get eaten. The avocados get brown and yucky after sitting out, making the dip a "throw away" if it doesn't get gobbled up in one sitting. The avocados definitely add to the dip so I make sure to serve them, just not on top of the big pan of dip...and then I add a dollop of sour cream on top of each serving!

Hope its a big hit at your house...it always is at mine!
Its a great summer lunch for a house full of kids!!!!
