Meredyth's Mexican Dip

Several years ago, Mom helped me write out recipes on 4x6 cards. We laminated them, and even made dividers. Over time, the box holding the cards fell apart, and I wound up with a disorganized mess. I finally bought a new box for them (this time, one that latches!) and in the process of sorting, realized that I had not posted a single appetizer recipe to the blog.

It is well past time to remedy that, methinks. :)

Up first: a delicious Mexican dip that came from my Aunt Meredyth. Since it needs a little time to sit before serving, it's wonderful for parties - just pop it in the fridge the night before and you're ready to go! Note: although you could get away with low-fat or fat-free cheese, don't try it with the sour cream. It will separate and get funky and ruin the dip.

Meredyth's Mexican Dip

1 15-oz can refried beans
8 oz sour cream
8 oz guacamole
1 4-oz can chopped green chilies, drained
1 4-oz can sliced black olives
1/2 pkg. taco seasoning
1/2 c. chopped green onions
1/2 - 1 c. chopped tomatoes
1 c. monterey jack cheese

Layer ingredients in order in a dish. (We use a #3 10-cup square Rubbermaid container.) Refrigerate at least two hours. Serve with tortilla chips or Fritos.
