Try this delicious layered dip at your next party!

From, "Traditions...A Taste of the Good Life" published by The Junior League of Little Rock, Inc. in cooperation with your Daily InBox newsletter.


1 (15 ounce) can refried beans
3 ripe avocados
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 (8 ounce) carton sour cream
2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1 (1-1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 bunch green onions (tops and bottoms), chopped
1 (8 ounce) package Cheddar cheese, grated
1 (4-1/4 ounce) can chopped black olives, drained
Picante sauce (Optional)
Jalapeno peppers (Optional)
Tortilla chips

Spread refried beans on the bottom of a 9 x 13 pyrex dish and set aside. Mash avocados. Mix with lemon juice, salt, pepper and garlic powder. (You may use a 16 ounce container Calavo avocado dip instead of avocado mixture.) In another bowl, combine sour cream, mayonnaise and taco seasoning mix. Spread avocado mixture over refried beans. Spread the sour cream mixture over the avocado mixture. Sprinkle with tomatoes, onions, cheese and olives, making each a separate layer. You should have 7 layers when completed. Serve cold with tortilla chips. Picante sauce may be spooned over the tomato layer, if desired, and jalapeno peppers may be added to the top.

NOTE: For a special occasion, make a crust of 1-1/2 to 2 cups corn chips and 1/4 cup melted butter. Place in bottom and sides of springform pan and bake for 8 to 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Layer the taco dip ingredients in the pan. Refrigerate for several hours and unmold at serving time.

1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup pecans, toasted and chopped


Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Combine flour, salt, and baking powder in a separate bowl. Gradually blend flour mixture into butter mixture. Stir in nuts (mixing with your hands if necessary to distribute nuts evenly). Shape dough into 2 rolls, 1-1/2 inches in diameter each. Wrap in wax paper and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours. (Dough may be stored in refrigerator up to 3 days.)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a baking sheet. Unwrap dough and, using a sharp knife, cut into 1/8-inch slices. Place slices 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. Transfer to racks to cool.
