fiesta ole dip (aka seven layer dip)

ok. so this is definitely a christensen family fav that we make at least once a year. perfect for any party and always a hit. (especially for all you mexican food fans out there) mmmm, so delish.
2 medium sized ripe avocados
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 c sour cream
1/4 cup mayo
1 pkg dry taco seasoning
1 can refried beans
1/2 c chopped green onion
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 can pitted black olives, drained and chopped
1 c grated cheese

combine sour cream, mayo, and taco seasoning-set aside. peel, pit and mash avocados-salt and pepper. to assemble: spread refried beans on platter. top with seasoned avocado mixture. add sour cream mixture, chopped onions and tomatoes. top with grated cheese and olives. serve chilled or at room temperature with tortilla chips.

(hint from my mom, mother teresa: prepare a few hours ahead of time to let flavors soak in) also, if you only want a 6 layer dip or want to add one more of your favorites to make it an 8 layer dip, go for it!

This is a staple at all family gatherings. I have never used mayo and taco seasoning, definitely trying that!
