What You'll Need:
  • 1 (10-1/2-ounce) package corn chips, crushed
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 (16-ounce) cans refried beans
  • 1 (1-1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
  • 1 (6-ounce) carton avocado dip
  • 1 (8-ounce) container sour cream
  • 3 (2-1/4-ounce) cans sliced ripe olives
  • 2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 2 (4.5-ounce) cans chopped green chilies, drained
  • 1 (8-ounce) package Monterey Jack cheese with peppers, shredded
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine crushed corn chips and butter; press into bottom and 1-inch up sides of a lightly greased 9-inch springform pan. Bake 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. Combine refried beans and taco seasoning mix, stirring well; spread over prepared crust. Layer avocado dip and remaining 5 ingredients over refried bean mixture; cover and chill 8 hours.
  3. Place on a serving plate, and remove sides of springform pan. Serve with large corn chips or tortilla chips.
  • You might want to add a half pound shredded cooked chicken or browned ground beef to this popular Mexican spread for a hearty change. You can also substitute 1 cup homemade guacamole for avocado dip, if you enjoy making the creamy dip. Crushing the corn chips? No problem. Just transfer the chips to a zip-top bag, seal the bag, and have at it with a meat mallet or rolling pin.
