Everyone needs that one appetizer that can be made it a flash. You know when you just don’t have the time to make anything really fancy. This bean dip is just that. Most of the ingredients probably can be found in your kitchen right now and if not just pick up the rest next time you’re shopping. You can put this together fifteen minutes before you walk out the door. But, it can be made three or four hours in advance if needed. I have carried to my tennis matches and get togethers for years and it is always a hit. Even those with no cooking skills can impress your friends because it looks beautiful and taste great. You know that everyone just loves a good dip!
Here’s how to put it together:
Spread one can of Frito Lays bean dip on a platter. Cover with 1/2 cup of sour cream. Fat-free sour cream works fine. Sometimes at this point I will layer with quacamole. Then cover with some really pretty shredded green lettuce. I used green leaf here. When I have been in a huge hurry I have used bagged shredded lettuce, but the color is not as pretty.
Next chop some really good tomatoes. You know the ones we’ll be eating here in Georgia in a few months. I used some tasty grape tomatoes here and sliced them in quarters topping with some sliced black olives.
Layer with the shredded cheese or cheeses of your choice. I used Monterey Jack with peppers and topped the whole thing with some sliced green onions.
