Seven Layer Mexican Dip

Here's what you'll need:
1 small can refried beans or bean dip

1 (8 oz) sour cream
1 pkg taco seasoning mix
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3 -4 mashed avocados 1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 small can sliced olives
green onions
1 tomato diced (I just used canned and drain them really well)
1 pkg Mexican blend shredded cheese
Spread the beans into the bottom of a round or square serving dish with 2 inch sides, I used an 8 x 8 glass pyrex dish.
Mix the sour cream, taco seasoning and 1/2 c mayonnaise together and spread on top of the bean dip. Refrigerate in between adding each layer.

(I couldn't show a picture of the refried beans - I think they are GROSS!!! I had to skip that part for you. Hey, I never said I worked for the Food Network, you aren't getting perfection here!)

Mix the avocados, lemon juice, 1/2 c mayonnaise and Worcestershire sauce together and then spread on top of the sour cream mixture.
I use a glass dish because I think the layers look fun from the side.
Sprinkle cheese all over top until well coated. Add olives, chopped green onions, tomatoes. Serve with tortilla chips.

Now you are going to think I'm crazy for making this if I a) hate refried beans, or beans of any sort for that matter and b) don't care much for avocados. But this is the YUMMIEST dip and I'm willing to deal with a few beans to make this for my husband, Dan. I make this a lot for family gatherings, pot lucks or for when Dan has his game night with his friends.
