We're in love with Mexican food. I don't know how Mexican it even is, but if there is some Old El Paso involved, we're in. Here's another great meal, if you're lazy, and a great app dish to bring to parties.

Refried Beans
Guacamole (or whatever lame excuse you can whip up)
Sour Cream
Mayo (optional)
Taco Seasoning
Green onions
Olives, etc (optional)

1. Spread a layer of refried beans in a large flat bowl or dish. 

2. Smash up an avocado, and make some guacamole. I don't know how to make it, so I just do whatever seems right. I add some lemon juice, a bit of sour cream, and some taco seasoning - pretty lame. I'm sure there are MUCH better recipes out there....anyhow....spread onto bean layer.

3. Mix up quantities of sour cream & mayo (half and half) & taco seasoning. I don't measure, I just dump stuff into a bowl until it looks ok. Make it to taste, you don't need mayo, but it does add some flavour.  Spread onto guacamole layer.

4. Sprinkle grated cheese on top. I used a pizza mix, but cheddar is probably best.

5. Chop up any veggies you like, and add on top. (Tomato, Green onion, Olives, etc...)

6. Spoon on to a plate and serve with nacho chips, and sometimes, when we eat this for dinner, we'll add some seasoned ground beef on the side.
