This layered bean dip is quick and easy to make and is a fun and healthy addition to your Cinco De Mayo menu.
1 can refried beans
1 cup plain yogurt
1 tsp taco seasoning
½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup guacamole (1 avocado, salt, 1 tsp lemon juice)
1 cup iceberg lettuce, chopped
3 roma tomatoes, chopped
¼ cup olives, pitted and chopped
2 green onions, chopped
Place refined beans in the bottom of a glass dish.
Next, mix together the yogurt and taco seasoning and place that mixture on top of the refried beans.
Next add a layer of cheese.
Next you will add the guacamole – if you want to make your own, just mash together 1 avocado with a tsp of lemon juice and salt.
Now it is time to add the iceberg lettuce layer.
Add the roma tomatoes, olives and green onions.

This recipe is quick and easy to make and is loved by my husband, daughters and friends. I use my homemade yogurt in this recipe, but you can use plain yogurt or even sour cream if you desire.

We like to serve this layered bean dip with Mary’s Organic Crackers, but corn chips are also a popular side dish.
