This Layered Taco Dip is so versatile. You can add your favorite layers of any ingredient you like. It never lasts long in my house and is certainly a favorite. We love that you can serve it hot or cold, too.

1 to 2cupsof your favorite shredded cheeseI used Mexican
Spread the refried beans in the bottom of a 9 x 13 casserole dish. Using a mixer combine cream cheese, sour cream, taco seasoning mix and salt and pepper. (I put my cream cheese in the microwave for about 1 minute to soften it). Spread on top of refried beans. Add a layer of olives, green chilis, green onions, salsa, fresh tomato and avocado. Sprinkle cheese on top and refrigerate for several hours. Serve cold or hot. (You can put in microwave when you get ready to serve if you want the cheese melted on top.) Serve with taco chip, nachos, or crackers.
You could even add a layer of cooked meat to this dip such as sausage, hamburger, etc.
