FOODIE FRIDAY - It's DIPLICIOUS! (Layered Nacho Dip)

If there's one single dip that is no doubt universally loved more than any other it's the layered nacho dip.

Now, as you know there are many, thousands actually, different versions of nacho dip.  Or taco dip....everyone has a different name for it too.  I'm specifically talking about the layer upon delicious layer of cheesy, bean-y, avocado-ey goodness.  This is always a hit at pot lucks or casual get togethers.  Or if you're craving a whole entire dish and want to eat it allbyyourself  with your significant other. That's okay too.  Your secret is safe with me.  Not that I've ever done that before or anything.  Because it's totally not addictive at all.


This is my version.  Hope you like!  (you can't really go wrong with this)


1 package of cream cheese
1/2 container of sour cream
1 cup of salsa
1 can of refried beans
2 large very ripe avocados - diced [ How to dice an avocado ] just in case you need some assistance
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 tsp chili powder
green onion - chopped
black olives

Mix together softened cream cheese, sour cream and chili powder.  Spread on bottom of a medium sized round or square dish - approx 9x13

Mix together the salsa and beans (this is key - the salsa helps to spread the bean mixture much easier)  Spread over the cream cheese layer.

Dice the avocados and place over bean/salsa layer.

Top with shredded cheese and garnish generously with green onions and black olives.

Grab a big bag of Tostitos (I love the Hint of Lime but of-course this is your choice) and dip in!!!

*CUE MUSIC*  'Nothing Compares' to this dip!  ;)  I know ... I'm being super corny.
