Layered Bean Dip

Prep time 10 mins
Yield Makes 8 servings
Look for fresh salsa and guacamole for this make-ahead dip at your supermarket deli. Substitute mild refried beans if you prefer.


  • 1 (15.6-oz.) can spicy refried beans
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 (8-oz.) package refrigerated guacamole
  • 1 cup refrigerated salsa
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • Toppings: chopped green onions, grape tomato halves, sour cream
  • Tortilla chips

How to Make It

  1. Stir together beans and sour cream. Spoon evenly into an 8-inch-square serving dish. Spread guacamole over bean mixture; top evenly with salsa, and sprinkle with cheese. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Add desired toppings, and serve with tortilla chips.
