Note: This recipe will fill a 9×9 square baking dish to the top. You can also spread it in a 9×13 baking pan but the layers will be thinner.
Spread the refried beans in the bottom of a square baking pan, then sprinkle the taco seasoning over the top. (You can also mix the taco seasoning with the beans or with the sour cream mix if you'd like it to be more evenly distributed.)
In a small bowl, combine together the cream cheese and sour cream. Mix well, then spread the cream cheese layer over the refried beans.
Spread the guacamole over the sour cream mix.
Spread the salsa over the guacamole.
Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the salsa.
Sprinkle lettuce over the cheese.
Sprinkle sliced olives on the top.
Serve immediately or within 1 hour of preparing the dip. Cover and let chill in the refrigerator before serving. Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 2 days.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why is my taco dip runny?
If you find your taco dip runny, it could be the extra juices from the salsa, fresh veggies or shredded lettuce. It’s best to serve this dip within 1 hour of making it.
Will the guacamole turn brown in taco dip?
We choose to use store bought guacamole for this recipe. We find that it has ingredients to keep it fresh and not turn brown for up to 2 days. You may have more trouble with the avocado turning brown if you make it yourself.
Can I make taco dip in advance?
If you want to make this in advance, layer only the first two layers, cover and refrigerate. Prepare the other layers, but don’t add them until you are ready to serve it.
Can taco dip be frozen?
No. This dip won’t be good if frozen. Just don’t do it. 🙂

The dairy based ingredients in this dip should be kept cold. You’ll want to refrigerate the dip within 1 hour.
Can I add ground beef?
