This is a very traditional recipe for the good old fashioned Mexican Seven Layer Dip.
Refried Beans (if you have never tried them) are just delicious.
If you find them a little bland and want to pack a punch in taste, season with salt and pepper and add some chili or paprika.
This recipe can be made ahead and kept in the fridge for up to two days.
