Seven Layer Dip

Tomorrow is New Year's Eve and us wild partiers at the Goodnight casa are revving up for a good time of chip and dip, maybe a movie or two, and the ever popular midnight event (at our house anyway)  that comes right after the ball drops in Time Square - The Chicken Dance!

Here's the dip I'll be serving to all the revelers:

Seven Layer Dip
(Yes, I "borrowed" this photo. I'll try to post mine tomorrow.)
1 16 oz can of refried beans (no-fat kind is okay.)

1 package taco seasoning

1 small, (about 12 oz) container of guacamole dip

1 16 oz carton of sour cream (low-fat is okay)
2 cups of cheese, cheddar or Mexican blend or Monterey Jack. I usually do cheddar (low-fat is okay)

1 small can sliced or chopped black olives

                                                                               3-4 green onions – just the green part chopped up

                                                                                1 cup chopped tomatoes

To put together:
9 x 13 dish (Can also do round if you have a pretty round container. A trifle bowl would look gorgeous!)
    1. Mix beans with the taco seasoning and layer into bottom of dish. Then layer on the following:

    2. guacamole dip

    3. sour cream

    4. black olives

    5. cheese

    6. Green onions
    7. Tomatoes. 
    8. I sometimes like to put a little shredded lettuce on top but that’s optional
You can eat it right away or chill and serve in an hour or so. Best if eaten the same day it’s made but still good the next day--just not as pretty.
Serve with tortilla chips or corn chips.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, my dear friends.  Keep Calm and do the Chicken Dance!!
