1 can (15 ounces) refried beans

1 packet of taco seasoning mix

1 cup sour cream, separated

1 cup mild or medium chunky salsa (make sure it's not watery)

1 cup freshly grated sharp cheddar or Colby jack cheese

1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

3-4 green onions, diced

1/2 can drained olives, separated

1 cup prepared guacamole

Tortilla Chips

1 (10-12 inch) round plate, pie tin, or tart dish


In a small bowl mix the taco seasoning with the refried beans. Spread this mixture evenly on the bottom of a 10-12 inch plate/pie tin/tart pan. Spread 3/4 cup of the sour cream on top and then gently spread.

Add dollops of salsa and gently smooth on top. Add dollops of the guacamole spread slowly. 

Slice half of the olives. Around the edge add the freshly grated cheese, thinly sliced green onions, sliced olives, and halved cherry tomatoes.  With the remaining 1/4 cup of sour cream, put it into a plastic bag and cut off the tip. Squeeze the sour cream into a spider web pattern over the guacamole. 

Make olive spiders -- half a few olives lengthwise and then cut a few olives into small strips. Place the halved olives in the mix and the strips around the halved olive to look like a spider.

Enjoy dip immediately or within 10-15 minutes after preparing. Serve with tortilla chips.
