Super 7-Layer Bean Dip

No game day party is complete without a big platter of 7-Layer Bean Dip. With beans at the base, it’s deceptively healthy, and for busy party planners, it’s a welcome make-ahead dish.

2 15-ounce cans refried beans (black or pinto)
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon garlic powder
2 cups guacamole
8 ounces low-fat or regular sour cream
¾ cup salsa
1 ½ cups shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
1 cup sliced black olives
¼ cup sliced green onions
Plenty of tortilla chips for dipping

In a mixing bowl, combine the refried beans with the chili powder, cumin and garlic.
Spread the beans in a single layer in a 9 x 13 pan or on a platter.
Top with a layer of guacamole.
Spread the sour cream evenly over the guacamole.
Spoon dollops of salsa on top.
Sprinkle with cheese, olives and green onion.

If making ahead, cover tightly with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator.

Serve with tortilla chips.
