This is a bean dip that I make often to take to parties, potlucks or just to pig out on right here at home! I made up the recipe myself, and if I do say so myself it’s pretty darn good. Always a big hit with friends! But watch out, serious garlic breath may ensue… 😀

Cat’s Layered Bean Dip

1 Can Re-fried Beans (I use PC brand, but any type will do)

1 tsp Cumin

1 Small Tub 500 Ml. Fresh Salsa

2 Ripe Avacadoes

2 TBSP Mayonnaise

3 Cloves Garlic

1 tsp Lime Juice

1 Small Tub 500 Ml. Sour Cream

1 1/2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese

1 Ripe Tomato (optional)

In a medium size see-through bowl, layer beans mixed with the cumin then salsa. Mash pitted avacadoes, mayo, garlic and lime juice until well blended and smooth, and spread this guacamole layer over salsa layer. Next spread sour cream, and top with shredded cheddar cheese and chopped tomatoes if using. Serve with nacho chips.

*You can also use ground beef, or chicken in place of the re-fried beans if you wish.

*This also makes a great filling for wraps. Grill some sliced chicken breast, and top with dip inside of tortilla wraps.
