Spider's Nest Dip

Spider's Nest Dip

2 8-ounce pkg cream cheese, Kraft Philadelphia®
1 1.25-ounce pkg taco seasoning mix, McCormick®
1-1/2 cups sour cream, Knudsen®
1 cup guacamole (from your grocery's deli section)
1/2 cup fresh chunky salsa (from your grocery's deli section)
1 16-ounce can black refried beans, Rosarita's®
1 12-ounce pkg shredded Mexican cheese, Sargento®
1 2.25-ounce can chopped black olives, Lindsay®
1 15-ounce can whole black beans, drained and rinsed, Rosarita's®
4 to 6 bags blue tortilla chips, Garden of Eatin'®

In a small bowl, mix cream cheese and taco seasoning with one cup of the sour cream (hold the rest of the sour cream to decorate). Set mixture aside. Spread a thin layer of refried beans in the bottom of a microwaveable serving dish. Add a layer of shredded cheese. Heat dish in microwave for 20-25 seconds, until cheese is slightly melted. Drain the salsa and layer it over the cheese.

Drain the olives and layer over the salsa. Add a layer of the sour cream mixture. Add a layer of guacamole. To decorate the top, spoon a medium-sized dollop of sour cream in the center. This is the spider's "nest."

Spoon the rest of the sour cream into a zipper plastic bag. Cut a very small piece out of one of the bottom corners of the bag and, starting at the outer edge of the dip, pipe a thin circle around the perimeter. Create another circle half way between the perimeter circle and the center dollop, creating three circles.

Using a knife blade, toothpick or skewer, drag a thin line of the sour cream from the "nest" outward toward the edge of the dish. Continue making lines all around the "nest" to complete the spider web design. Position whole black beans onto the sour cream "web." Embellish with plastic decorative spiders. Serve with a bowl of blue tortilla chips, and watch your guests scurry to get a bite!

Prep time: 10 minutes.
