Mothers Day Week - Layered Tortilla Dip

My parents love to entertain and to try out new recipes all the time. This one was in her arsenal for years. I loved it as a kid and still love it now. I've been making this for parties and dinners ever since I moved out on my own. It's simple and quick to make and is highly addictive.

7 Layer Dip

In a large flat bottom bowl, layer in this order:

1 - 1 can refried beans
2 - 2 avocados mashed with 1 tsp lemon juice and a sprinkle of salt
3 - Mix together - 250 g cream cheese, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup mayonnaise
4 - 1 cup salsa
5 - 1 cup sliced black olives
6 - 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
7 - 4 green onions chopped

Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least an hour before serving. Serve with tortilla chips.
