  • 16 oz refried beans
  • 3 ripe avocados cut in half, pitted and mashed with fork
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 1 bottle chunky salsa
  • 8 oz package shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 lime squeezed
  • 1/2 white onion chopped
  • 2 roma tomatoes chopped
  • 2 green onions (scallions) sliced
  • 2.25 oz sliced black olives drained
  • 1 package queso fresco crumbled
  • pickled jalapeños 1 to 2 teaspoons per glass
  • 1 package corn tortillas cut, look at picture in post, or buy a bag of tortilla chips
  • vegetable oil for frying corn tortillas


Simple Guacamole

  • Cut avocados in half and remove pits with a knife. Remove flesh and place in a bowl. Mash with a fork. 
  • Add chopped onion and sprinkle with a little lime juice (to avoid the avocado discoloring). Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix all together and now you have a simple homemade guacamole. 


  • Place refried beans in a bowl and warm up in microwave for about 40 seconds just enough to be able to easily spread.
  • Add about 2 tablespoons of beans to small glass cups (or 9 ounce tumblers). 
  • Add a layer of guacamole, a layer of sour cream and a layer of chunky salsa. Add shredded cheddar cheese. Add chopped tomatoes, scallions, drained olives, pickled jalapeños, drained black olives and crumbled cheese.
  • Place prepared glasses in refrigerator.

Corn Tortillas and Serving

  • Cut corn tortillas in odd long shapes. 
    Add about 1/2 inch of vegetable oil to frying pan and cook a few at a time until crispy and golden. Drain on a paper towesl. 
    When you are ready to serve your individual glasses add a chip to each and serve with additional chips on the side.


Serve with small teaspoons in each glass for even easier spreading/dunking if desired.
