Tasty Tuesday-7 Day Layer Dip

At first I wanted to do death by chocolate and provide a copycat recipe for the Coldstone Creamery ice cream that Sam gets everyday in Before I Fall, by Lauren Oliver.  But, then I figured that was cheating. 

So here we have: 7 Day Layer Dip.  One yummy layer for each chance that Sam had to make things right.

1 can of refried beans
1 pkg. taco mix with 1/2 cup lowfat sour cream
2 avocados, peeled and mashed with 1 tbsp. lemon juice
3 oz. cheddar cheese
4-5 stalks green onion, chopped
2-3 tomatoes, diced
1 sm. can chopped black olives

Spread beans in a 9x13 inch pan. Over beans, layer taco mix, avocado mix, cheese, onions, tomatoes, and black olives. Refrigerate. Serve with taco chips. Servings: 6


  1. I've always loved these kinds of dips!! Yum. I'll have to try out this recipe. Thanks for sharing it. :)

    Interesting! Do you get these recipes from the books themselves or are they original recipes inspired by the books?

  3. After reading a book, I like to think about the overall themes, milieu, and tone. Then I go through tried and true recipes that I love and see if I can find one that is a good match. This way I can share two of my loves-cooking and reading!

    Christy, I forgot to mention that I found you through the "Interesting & Unique Memes" thread on Book Blogs. If you turned this into a meme (with badge and linky), it might prove to be popular!


Leave me a comment-I'd love to hear what you think!
