"This is a great party dip because it's best served at room temperature. You can set it out on the table early and finish cooking the rest of your meal."

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a large skillet, brown ground beef. Set aside to drain and cool to room temperature.
  2. Spread the beans into the bottom of a 9x13 inch serving tray that is about 1 1/2 inches deep. Sprinkle 2 cups of shredded cheese on top of beans. Sprinkle beef on top of cheese. Spread sour cream very slowly on top of beef. Spread guacamole on top of sour cream. Pour salsa over guacamole and spread evenly. Sprinkle remaining shredded cheese. Sprinkle black olives, tomatoes, and green onions on top.
  3. You can serve this dish immediately, or refrigerate it over night and serve cold. I think it tastes better at room temperature.

Excellent. I omitted the guacamole and upped the sour cream to 16 oz. Added 2 TBS of taco seasoning to sour cream. Thanks!

This dip was incredible! There were only 4 of us so I cut the recipe in half and served it in an 8" square glass dish. I used the same amount of sour cream though and instead of using guacamole,...
