This recipe and photo come from The Pioneer Woman's website. If you haven't checked it out, you really should. It's wonderful. I made a couple changes, but mostly used her ingredients. For the pico I went to Costa Vida & they sold me a container of it for about $4. I think it added a lot. :)
- 1 can Refried Beans
- Tabasco Sauce, To Taste
- 1 can Diced Green Chilies
- Ground Cumin (to Taste)
- ¾ cups Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese
- 1 cup Sour Cream
- 1 cup Guacamole
- ¾ cups Monterey Jack Cheese
- 1 can Black Olives
- 1 cup Pico De Gallo
Begin by throwing the refried beans into a small pan over medium-low heat. Add several dashes of Tabasco sauce and a small can of (undrained) diced green chilies. Stir well. Next, sprinkle a little bit of ground Cumin.
Spread the beans on the bottom of a glass bowl or high-sided dish. Over this sprinkle the sharp cheddar. Next, plop your sour cream. And spread it into a single layer, being careful not to disturb the cheese underneath.
The next layer is the guacamole. Spread it over the sour cream. Follow this with a layer of Monterey Jack Cheese and a nice sprinkling of chopped black olives. Lastly, place a generous layer of Pico de Gallo. You can also, if you have the gumption for it, sprinkle some diced jalapenos over top.
