6 Layer Dip

Sometimes I call this recipe the 7 Layer Dip or the 5 Layer Dip depending on how many ingredients I actually make it with. There are many ingredients you could use, the only important matter is what order you add them because somethings are more difficult to spread and the goal is to keep the layers separate and distinct. So, be sure to also keep layers of similar color separate from each other!

1 can re-fried beans (MUST be the bottom layer)
Mashed avocado (works well on top of the beans)
sour cream (gently spread on top of avocado)
shredded cheese (cheddar or Monterey Jack)
chopped red onion

optional ingredients for added layers of fun:
shredded lettuce (typically a top layer)
chopped tomatoes
chopped black olives

  1. In bottom of a glass baking dish, spread the can of re-fried beans.
  2. Next gently spread the avocado.
  3. Then gently spread the sour cream.
  4. Gently pour salsa over that.
  5. Sprinkle shredded cheese over the top.
  6. Add chopped red onion over that.
  7. Refrigerate for an hour.
  8. Serve with tortilla chips and scoop out of dish.
