  • 30 oz can of refried beans
  • 3 medium sized avocado
  • 1 small lime
  • 1 medium tomato chopped
  • 1 package of taco seasoning
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups of sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups of salsa
  • 1 cup of shredded lettuce
  • 1/2 cup of chopped black olives


  • Mix the refried beans and package of taco seasoning together really well
  • Take skin off avocados and pit out and add to a bowl
  • Add 1/2 cup of the salsa and lime juice to the avocados and mash with a fork
  • Take a large bowl or casserole dish and pour the refried beans into the bowl and spread out evenly
  • Next on top of the beans put a layer of guacamole and spread out evenly
  • Then add the sour cream in dollops and spread out evenly carefully not mixing the guacamole and sour cream
  • Next pour the salsa on top of the sour cream layer and spread out evenly
  • Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of the sour cream layer
  • Then sprinkle the shredded lettuce, then chopped tomatoes, and then the chopped black olives
  • Cover and refrigerate at least for 30 minutes to firm up some before serving



  • If you want to save some time use a food processor to mix the refried beans and taco seasoning together. This will also save your arm from a lot of work
  • If you want your beans not a thick you can add some vegetable oil to the beans to thin them out. Just add a little at a time so you don't add too much.
  • When I'm making this for an adult crowd I like to add some hot sauce like Louisiana hot sauce to the beans. It gives a little kick which I love
  • If you have a favorite guacamole recipe you can use that. You will just need a 1/2 cup less of the salsa. Or if you want to buy some premade guacamole eliminate the avocados and lime form the recipe.
  • When spreading the sour cream on top of the guacamole you want to be careful to not mix the guacamole and sour cream together. You want to have defiant layers. The same when adding the salsa on top of the sour cream
  • Make this the day of to prevent the guacamole from browning and the layer mixing together
