Serves: 8-12 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 15oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 15 oz can refried beans
  • 2-3 teaspoons gluten-free taco seasoning (according to taste)
  • 1 cup low fat sour cream or dairy free alternative
  • 3- 3½ ripe avocados (depending on size)
  • ½ cup jarred banana peppers, chopped
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 heaping cup grape tomatoes, quartered or smaller according to taste and how big the tomatoes are.
  • ⅔ cup -1 cup shredded Mexican Blend Cheese (or dairy free alternative)
  • ⅓ cup black olives, sliced
  • ⅓ cup green onions, sliced (green part only)
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place Tomatoes in a strainer over a bowl, sprinkle with salt and set aside while you prep the other layers. This will help the tomatoes release some water so that the dip doesn't get watery.
  3. Make Bean Layer: In a small bowl mix refried beans and taco seasoning. Gently fold in black beans.
  4. Make Guacamole layer: With a fork gently mash 2 avocados. Mix in the peppers. Then gently fold in cilantro. Add in the third avocado and gently mash with a fork (I like to do the third avocado last so that there are some chunky avocado pieces but mix to your liking). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Assemble: In a shallow pan (8x 12 or 8 x 11), use a spatula to layer beans, then guacamole, then sour cream. Top with black olives and diced tomatoes. Then top with cheese.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and it's heated all the way through. Pro-tip: if your pan is packed to the brim, place pan on a baking sheet before baking. It will make it easier to get in and out of the oven and if it bubbles over, it won't be a mess!
  7. Top with green onions.
  8. Serve with your favorite chips. Enjoy!
