8 layer dip

I found this recipe in the Everyday food magazine a few years ago. I love layer dips but when ever I buy them at a store I find the flavors blend so much and it becomes very watery. This one looked very good and easy to make so I decided to try it out at a BBQ that we had at my mom's house. It was a huge hit and my mother asks me to make it every year now. It would be great for a game day. I promise you that you it will be the first thing to go and your guests will be asking you to make it again.


1 16 ounce can of refried beans
2 tsp fresh lime juice
salt and pepper
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 4.5 ounce can of green chiles
2 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 avocado diced
1 cup shredded lettuce
2 scallions


In a medium bowl, combine beans, lime juice, 2 tablespoons of water and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a serving dish. Top with sour cream, cheese, chiles, tomato, avocado, lettuce, and scallions. Serve with tortilla chips.
