Ingredients

  • 1 can refried beans (with or without chilli)
  • 1 small tub sour cream (full or light)
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 clove garlic

Method

Bottom layer

Spread out refried beans onto small square or round plate.

Layer 2

Make the guacamole by mixing up the garlic, red onion, chilli (optional) and coriander in a food processor until finely chopped. Add in avocado, salt and pepper and add lime juice slowly to taste. Spread over the refried beans, leaving a small ring around the edge to see the layer.

Layer 3

Mix the sour cream, taco seasoning and mayo together in a small bowl and mix. Add over the top of the guacamole, again leaving a small ring around the edge.

Layer 4

Add on the chopped spring onions.

Layer 5

Add on the chopped cherry tomatoes.

Layer 6

Add the black olives.

Layer 7

Add shredded cheese—not too much so as to not to completely cover layers 4-6.

Serve with chips/crackers.
