Flag Bean-Guacamole Dip

We had a great 4th of July celebration with friends. Great food, relaxing afternoon, and awesome fireworks over the water. One of the things I took for the potluck was a twist on my favorite bean dip. It's super easy to throw together and everyone loved it - it was one of the first things that disappeared. (Plus, it just looked amazing).


2 Cans Refried Beans
2 Tb. Taco Seasoning.
2 Large Avacados
1 Cup Light Sour Cream
2 Tb. Guacamole Seasoning Mix
4 Green Onions - diced
1 Large Tomato - Diced.
1 Large Can of Diced Olives
2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1 Slice Mozzarella Cheese


  1. Spread the refried beans in the bottom of a 9x13" pan. (I used a good ol' Ziplock tuperware container - cheap and easy to transport in the cooler.) Sprinkle the taco seasoning evenly over the refried beans.
  2. To make your guacamole, smash the avocados in a small bowl. Add 1/4 cup sour cream, seasoning mix and green onions. Mix well and then spread this over the refried beans layer.
  3. Take the rest of your sour cream and spread it over the top of the guacamole for a third layer.
  4. Spread one cup of shredded mozzarella for your fourth layer.
  5. Take your chopped diced olives and put them on the corner of your "flag".
  6. Using the rest of your shredded mozzarella, and diced tomatoes, make the stripes of your flag.
  7. Using a small star cookie cutter, cut stars out of the sliced mozzarella and place those on top of your olives in the corner.
  8. Walla - flag bean dip. 

Here is what your final dish should look like
Very patriotic - and super yummy!
