Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mash the avocados in a small bowl. Add the lime juice and salt to taste.

Add about 1/4 cup chopped green onions to the mashed avocados. Set aside.

Stir together the sour cream and taco seasoning in another small bowl. Set aside.

Spread the refried beans into a casserole dish. Add the avocado and spread evenly.

Layer the sour cream mixture and spread evenly.

Add the green onions, chiles, black olives, and tomatoes. I reserve some of the vegetables for the top after it has been baked.

Cover with shredded cheese.

Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Top with the remaining green onions, olives, and tomatoes.
