Awesome Taco Dip

  • 1 16 oz can of refried beans (your choice of type: Traditional, Vegetarian, Ect.)
  • 1 12oz bottle of taco sauce (Hot, Medium, Mild, your choice)
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning (original, or low sodium, your choice)
  • 1 16 oz container of sour cream
  • 3 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cookie sheet
  • Other toppings if desired:
  • 1 batch of green onions,
  • 1 can (small)of diced black olives,
  • 1 can (small)jalapeno slices


  • Mix the can of refried bean and taco sauce in a bowl until well mixed.
  • After well mixed empty the bowl onto the cookie sheet and spread out evenly  *to get it even more even, lift the sheet 6 inches or so and drop flatley back on to the counter* This seems to get it perfectly smooth in our opinion.
  • In another bowl empty all the sour cream and taco seasoning. Mix really well.
  • Gently pour the sour cream and taco seasoning onto the refried beans in the cookie sheet and spread with a spatula or cake knife.*we usually do a little at a time*
  • Once spread evenly cover evenly with the 3 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
  • To add other ingredients on top:
Green Onion:
Sliced Black Olives:
  • Drain the juice out of the can of black olives and add as much as you like
Sliced Jalapenos:
  • Take out the slices and add where you like. We make half with jalapenos and the other half without.
