Seven layer taco dip

Another great party recipe. This recipe makes enough to feed about 10.

What you’ll need:

1 pkg taco seasoning
1 (16 oz) can refried beans
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
1 (16 oz) container of sour cream
1 (16 oz) jar salsa (any variety you prefer)
1 large tomato, chopped
1 large bell pepper, chopped
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1 small head iceberg lettuce, shredded
1 (6 oz) can black olives, drained
2 c shredded cheddar cheese

In a medium bowl, mix together the taco seasoning and refried beans until well blended. Spread the mixture into a deep glass bowl (so you can see how pretty the layers are) or onto a large serving platter. In a different bowl (or the same bowl cleaned out), mix together the cream cheese and sour cream. Spread over the bean mixture. Spread the salsa over the top of that, then make a layer of tomato, then bell pepper, then onions, then lettuce, then cheese and last olives. Make sure to spread each layer evenly over the layer before it but not to mix them together. Serve with tortilla chips, Fritos, or crackers.

Cost:
taco seasoning – $0.50
refried beans – $1.08
cream cheese – $2.06
sour cream – $0.99
salsa – $1.59
tomato – $1.00
bell pepper – $0.90
onion – $1.12
lettuce – $0.89/head
olives – $2.25
shredded cheese – cheddar – $1.50
tortilla chips – $1.18
Total – $13.81/ around $1.38 per person
