  • 2 cans of organic refried beans. I usually buy a kind that has some jalepenos or other flavorful peppers in it for more yumminess.
  • 2 cups sour cream pastured is best, but if not, at least find sour cream with only cream listed in the ingredients
  • 1/4 cup homemade taco seasoning or more to your taste – be sure and check it before adding more. If you don't have any made up, just use 1 teaspoon cumin, 2 teaspoons garlic powder, and 3/4 teaspoon sea salt. (Find spices that aren't irradiated here.)
  • Any veggies you'd like: tomatoes green/red/orange peppers, black olives, or green onions.
  • About a cup of your favorite shredded cheese.
  • Organic nacho chips to avoid the nasty GMO corn for dippers


  • You can use a cookie sheet, or use a large pizza pan like I did.  (I love my stainless steel bakeware!)  You could also use 2-9×13's but you may need more sour cream.  Mix sour cream with seasonings and spread over the bean layer.  Sprinkle with cheese and optional veggies of your choice.  Serve with organic nacho chips.

Here are a few of the many different variations you can try with this dip…

  • Start with a layer of cream cheese on the bottom.  Then you can keep the sour cream layer or omit, it's good either way.  If you omit it, you may want to mix a little taco seasoning in with your beans before spreading them on top of the cream cheese.
  • Try a guacamole layer and make it into a layered guacamole dip, yum!
  • Add a salsa layer
