Taco Dip - Straight out of the Camera

I thought today was a good opportunity to add something yummy to SOOC with my Taco Dip. I took the photos quite a while ago but never had the chance to do anything with the photos and put them up here. I made this dip a couple of weeks ago for an appetizer for our Survivor night.
1 1/2 LB. Ground beef
1 medium Onion, chopped
1 large Jalepeno, finely chopped
5 cloves Garlic, minced
Brown ground beef, onion, jalepeno and garlic in skillet until onions are soft and beef is no longer pink.

1 envelope of Taco Seasoning
1/2 cup Water
Sprinkle Taco Seasoning over top of beef mixture, add water and simmer mixture for a few minutes to thicken and evaporate excess moisture.

1 16 oz. can Refried beans.
Spread a can of Refried Beans into the bottom of your dish. A 9x13 in. baking dish works good. I made two dishes for this but you don't have to!!

Add your ground beef mixture evenly over top of the refried bean layer.

1 8 oz. container Sour Cream
Dollup sour cream evenly over ground beef layer and spread it over top of your ground beef layer.

Spread on 8 oz jar of Taco Sauce or Salsa over top of the sour cream layer.

One small container of Cherry Tomatos, quartered
1 oz. tin Sliced Black Olives
Evenly spread olives and tomatoes over top of the Taco sauce layer.

Top with a generous layer of Aged Cheddar Cheese and Mozzarella mixture. The more cheese the better!!
Bake at 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes or until it is very hot and bubbly and cheese is golden brown!
Eat with Tortilla Chips!

I swear it is the cheese giving it this orange glow, not my camera!!!!
This dip could be a meal, it is that good. Hope you try it out and enjoy!!
