9-Layer Dip Tom & Kari

1 can refried beans or refried beans with sausage
2 California avocados, peeled and pitted
1 8-ounce sour cream
1 8-ounce jar picante sauce or salsa
1 cup finely shredded lettuce
1 large tomato, cored, seeded, and finely chopped
Several sliced black olives
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
As many jalapenos as you can stand

In a small bowl, mix refried beans with a few tablespoons picante or salsa to make spreadable.

Spread refried beans on bottom of glass pie plate, or other deep dish. (Do not use metal pan.)

In another small bowl, mash the avocado with 1/4 cup sour cream, a few tablespoons picante or salsa, and a teaspoon or two of lemon juice (keeps the avocado from turning brown).

Spread on top of refried bean mixture.

Glob or spread sour cream on top of avocado mixture.

Sprinkle lettuce, tomatoes, black olives, cheddar cheese, and jalapeno peppers, in roughly that order.

Drizzle picante or salsa all over the top, as much as desired.
