Bean Dip

My mother in law doesn't love to cook, but she is known for a few great recipes that everyone loves and expects from her whenever we get together. One of these most requested dishes is her bean dip. We all love it, even the kids. It is very easy to make and is an attractive, colorful dish. When Matthew asked me to make one for him to take to a guys Super Bowl party, I knew I might as well make one for the kids (okay, the kids and me too). 

Here is what you need:
13x9 dish or two smaller dishes (clear ones are nice so that you can see the layers)
2 cans of bean dip (sold on the chip isle)
1 16 oz container of sour cream (I use lite and never notice a difference)
1 pkt taco seasoning 
2 cups (or 1 bag) shredded cheddar cheese 
1 small can sliced black olives
1/4 cup diced green onions (optional)
1 cup diced tomatoes
frito scoops 

1. spread bean dip in bottom of dish
2. mix sour cream and taco seasoning. spread on top of bean dip.
3. sprinkle cheese onto sour cream mixture
4. add tomatoes, olives, and the dreaded green onions
5. serve with frito scoops
*you can also add salsa, guacamole, jalepenos, chili peppers or anything else that you like, but we prefer it when prepared like above
