Friday Friend Recipe #19 Layered "Taco" Dip

I feel as if I always need to explain myself  (the 3 people who read this blog might get tired of this explanation, BUT, I live in fear that a new person might happen along and say  WTH is she talking about!  so.... )

I know that my blog has an interesting name.  A name/title that no one gets, because there are no 'friends' writing posts every week. There is only me. 

Long before I knew what a blog was, I had a group e-mail forum that included my friends from near and far...and originally I would ask them a question on Fridays, cut and paste their answers and  share with all.
We made a cook book---yada yada yada.....
and I am making all the recipes from it!

Now, to get on with my post for the day....
Friday Friend Recipe number nineteen!! 
from Barbara Brown---who happens to be the editor and publisher of the cookbook  (I compiled and begged for people to send me recipes.  Some sent many, some sent one.  She typed them all up!  Man, what a job!)

Where was I?  Oh yes, Barbara Brown  (see ALL Barb's FF recipes, so far,  here) called this Layered Dip, but I added the Taco to it, because it is a taco dip.
Some have called it  7-layer dip, some call it  walk-away-taco dip, but whatever you choose to call it, this is a good one!

Layered 'Taco' Dip

FF Barbara Brown, Buckeye, AZ

1 pkg taco seasoning
1 can refried beans
1 tub guacamole (homemade is best)
4 oz can chopped olives
4 oz can diced green chilies
1 small bottle of taco sauce
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
3 chopped green onions
1 cup shredded jack cheese
3 med tomatoes, diced
sour cream

Mix taco seasoning with beans and spread on platter or in baking dish.  Next spread guacamole over beans. Sprinkle with olives and chilies.  Layer on remaining ingredients, dividing taco sauce in half or thirds.
End with sour cream on top.
Refrigerate 2 hours or overnight. 
Serve with taco chips.

**I got a bit out of order with the layering AND I dotted the sour cream.
As well as used olive wedges instead of chopped.
Forgive me Barb. 

It's soooo good!

My good friend Barb!
Game player, quilter, beach lover, book reader.
Good cook too!

Here she is 2nd from the left.
