9-Layer Taco Dip (Vegetarian)

This recipe is for a 9-layer taco dip.  It is my first time making it.  I used a traditional 7 layer dip recipe and adjusted it to suit my tastes and what I had on-hand.  The end result is a delicious appetizer with many delicious flavors working together.  Enjoy!

9-Layer Taco Dip (Vegetarian)


¨            1 can vegetarian refried beans
¨            1 can black beans
¨            1 container of sour cream
¨            1 block of cream cheese, softened
¨            1 pack of taco seasoning of your choice
¨            2 ripe avocados
¨            1 can corn
¨            1 jar salsa of your choice
¨            ¼ cup sliced green onions
¨            2 cups Mexican cheese
¨            ¼ cup sliced black olives



1.    In 9” square glass pan, spread layer of refried beans on bottom of pan.
2.   Add layer of drained, rinsed black beans
3.   In separate bowl, combine sour cream, cream cheese and ½ of the taco seasoning.  Stir to mix.  Spread over the beans to make the 3rd layer.
4.   Spread salsa over the sour cream mixture.
5.   In separate bowl, mix avocado and rest of the taco seasoning.  Spread over salsa to make the 5th layer.
6.   Spread green onions over avocado, this is your 6th layer.
7.   Spread can of corn over green onions. (layer 7)
8.   Spread cheese over top of serving dish. (layer 8)
9.   Spread layer of black olives over cheese. (layer 9)
10. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to set dish, serve with tortilla chips

This is a great dish to bring to a party.  Everybody likes it and its simple to throw together. Next time I might skip the avocado if they are not on sale.  Great combination of flavors.

This is not my cheapest dish to make.  The sour cream was $2.50, the beans were 2 for $3, the cream cheese was $1.29, taco seasoning was $.79, the avocados were $.80 each, the corn was $.89, the salsa was $2, the green onions were $1, the black olives were $1 and the cheese was $2.50.  The total for this dish is $16.57.

Look Forward To
I have a broccoli to use and a craving for pasta with red sauce.
