You can make it in advance; it is really portable, in case you want to take it to a party. It is really the perfect party appetizer.
Here is what you need,
1 can refried beans
1 small can chopped green chilies
1 cup sour cream
1 cup salsa
1 ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
After that it is up to you. I sometimes just use these 5 things and it is perfect!
But you can add shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes or green onion or black olives.
I have added a layer of homemade (guacamole), which is awesome! You could even put a layer of seasoned ground beef or chopped chicken on it, whatever floats your boat!
Now just layer it up,
Beans on the bottom,
Then the chilies,
And sour cream,
The green onions,
And finally cheese!
Cover with plastic wrap and store in the fridge until you are ready to eat it.
Serve with your favorite taco chips! Good luck not eating it all!
I wish I had some right now!
