Recipe - Layered Taco Dip

This is a  favorite recipes that I like to take to family dinners/gatherings. Everyone seems to like it and there usually isn't very much of it left over.

This recipe fills a 9x13 pan so it makes a lot.

2 - 15 oz. cans of fat free refried beans
1 pkg. taco seasoning mix
8 oz. pkg. of light cream cheese
16 oz. light sour cream
16 oz. jar of mild salsa (we don't like things too spicy here)
1 cup iceberg lettuce finely chopped
2 roma tomatoes
1/3 c. sliced black olives
3 or 4 green onions
1 c. finely shredded cheddar cheese

Mix taco seasoning mix with beans, then spread into the bottom of a 13x9 pan. (I use a clear glass dish)

Soften cream cheese and add sour cream, blend well and spread on top of refried beans.

Pour Salsa over the cream cheese layer and set in refrigerator for a while as you prepare the other items.

Chop lettuce, tomatoes, black olives and green onions. Add to the top of dip just before serving, then top with cheddar cheese.

Serve with tortilla chips.

Enjoy Your Weekend!
