Layered Fiesta Dip

This delicious Mexican dip is very similar to 7-Layer Dip... except for it only has 5 layers :). I like this recipe because it's quick to throw together and doesn't involve any chopping of the tomatoes, olives, and green onions like the traditional 7-layer bean dip does. This is what we snacked on this evening during our little Academy Awards family party/get together. It's pretty addicting!

1 can refried beans
sour cream
2 cups Mexican blend shredded cheese {or plain cheddar cheese will work just fine too}

Heat up the refried beans for 2 minutes in the microwave. Spread them evenly in an 8x8 baking dish. Spread guacamole on top of the beans, then the sour cream, then the salsa, and top with the shredded cheese. Cover with foil and put it in the refrigerator to let it "set." Serve with tortilla chips.

Hello Shannon!!! I've missed hearing from you. I tried e-mailing but I'm not sure if you received it. Any way, I wanted to let you know I love this blog. I wanted to ask if it's alright if I submit some of our family's favorite recipes for the WArd cook book?

Hi Michelle!
Thanks for your kind comment :) My sister mentioned to me a few weeks ago that you tried e-mailing me -- I never got it (and my address is the same!) I am doing well ~ we can catch up on a more personal level in an e-mail though :)

Yes, I would love for you to submit a recipe from your ward cookbook! Just e-mail me the recipe and a picture if you have one and I will post it (and credit it back to my beautiful blonde domestic cousin in Ohio! :)

Please tell your family "hello" from me and give them my love!

xoxo Shannon
