Six-Layer Dip

Ok, this is supposed to be Seven-Layer Dip, but my store was completely and utterly out of green onions.  I couldn't think of anything else good (and green) to be my top layer, so I left it alone, and it became Six-Layer Dip instead of Seven.  It was still good though!  Very popular with mostly everyone.  I served this with Fritos Scoops!

Six-Layer Dip
by What A Dish!

1 can (16 oz) fat-free refried beans
1 large avocado (or 2 small)
1 TBS salsa
splash lemon juice
salt & garlic powder, to taste
1 cup light sour cream
1/4 cup salsa
1/2 tsp each chili powder & cumin
1 1/2 cups (or more) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 can (dry weight- 6 oz) black olives, halved
1 cup halved grape tomatoes
corn or tortilla chips, for serving

1.  Spread the refried beans evenly over the bottom of an 8x8 or 9x9 square dish.  In a small bowl, mash the avocado.  Add the 1 TBS salsa, lemon juice, salt, and garlic powder.  Spread this mixture over the refried beans. 

2.  In another small bowl, mix the sour cream, 1/4 cup salsa, chili powder and cumin.  Spread this mixture evenly over the avocado mixture.

3.  Spread the shredded cheese evenly over the sour cream mixture.  Spread the olives on top of the cheese, and then add the tomatoes on top of everything.  If you have green onions, chop some and add them on top of the tomatoes for a seventh layer.  Refrigerate until serving, and then serve with corn or tortilla chips for dipping.
