Steps To Layer Taco Dip

The best way to layer dip is in a glass 9″ x 13″ baking dish.

First, start with the ground beef layer. Next add the creamy layers of avocado and taco seasoning. Finally, top with shredded cheese, chopped tomatoes, and black olives.

Step 1 – Cook and crumble beef into refried beans. Mix beans and spread into a 9″x13″ glass casserole or baking dish. Spread ground beef on top, press into beans to help everything stick together.

Step 2 – Mix Avocado, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and spread over beans.

Step 3 – Mix sour cream, mayo, taco seasoning and spread over avocado layer

Step 4 – Layer the rest of the ingredients in order: grated cheese, green onions, olives, diced tomatoes.

Quick tip: a great way to evenly spread all layers of taco dip is by using a rubber spatula. Work each layer by spreading evenly across from one edge of the pan to the other.

How to cook ground beef: Cook ground beef and a medium saucepan over medium-high heat until brown. For best results, remove excess grease, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
