"This is always a hit at any party! My friends and family beg me to make it every time! Use tortilla chips to scoop up the flavorful layers. The dip may be served immediately, but tastes best when chilled 1 hour."

1 (16 ounce) can
avocados, peeled and pitted
1 (16 ounce) container
1 (1.25 ounce) package
taco seasoning mix
1 (2.25 ounce) can
sliced black olives, drained
green onions, chopped
1 (16 ounce) package
Cheddar cheese, shredded
I give this recipe 5 stars ONLY if the lemon juice is substituted for lime juice and a little chopped onion is added to make the "guacamole" layer taste like real guacamole. It is very simple to make and tastes very good if done this way. The lemon juice just makes it taste like lemon flavored avacado instead of guacamole so Do try that instead.
Recipe tasted okay, I was a little concerned about the MSG in the recipe. Homemade seasoning would have made it much better!
I gave this 4 stars because this is a real good taco dip...But please leave out the avocados..everyone at the party i took this to said it ruined a great dip.And they were scraping them off...had several people tell me that had I not added them,this would have been wonderful!
We've been making this for years-we call it Mt. Diablo Dip. Its very versatile-you can add or subtract toppings and seasoning to suit your tastes. I always doctor up the beans stirring in a little garlic powder and some extra salsa.
My guests LOVED this recipe. I did make a few changes as follows:
For the avocado, I made a guacalome recipe and put that in it's place.
I also added a drained can of Mexican Corn and black beans
I also added a layer of shredded lettuce to the top under the cheese.
It could have been a whole meal in itself! Wonderful! I'll keep this one handy! Thanks!
This one is a classic that never fails to please. I made mine in a pyrex baking dish that was about 10"x10" and I felt as though 16 oz of cheese was a bit too much (I'd already grated a pound so I put it all on), I think it really depends on how big the surface area your dish of choice is. Also, I would definitly suggest seeding your tomatoes before dicing them, it will prevent the dip from getting wet and it will keep a lot better. This is one of those recipes I can never stop myself from eating too much of.
Very good taco dip, I did change just a few things. I added lettuce to the top, and I used lime juice with the avacados. I took this to a party and it was the first to go!
I've been making this dip for years, it actually gets invited to parties before I do. I mix some salsa in with the refried beans before layering.
