1 1/4 cups light sour cream, divided into 1 cup and 1/4 cup
1 1/2 tablespoons taco seasoning
1 (14.5 ounce) can fat-free refried beans
1 cup chunky salsa, drained
1 cup guacamole
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 cup chopped tomatoes, cored and seeded
1/4 cup black olives, sliced and drained
1/4 cup green onions, sliced, tops only
tortilla chips, for serving


Step 1

In a small bowl, combine the taco seasoning and 1 cup of sour cream. Set aside.

Step 2

Spread the refried beans out into the bottom of a 9-inch dish.

Step 3

Spread the taco seasoning/sour cream mixture on top of the refried beans, making it as even as possible.

Step 4

Spread the drained salsa on top of the taco seasoning/sour cream mixture.

Step 5

Top with guacamole, leaving a 1 1/2 - 2 inch border around the dish.

Step 6

Sprinkle all of the shredded cheese around the outer edge of the dish.

Step 7

Spread the olives, tomatoes, and green onions on top of the shredded cheese.

Step 8

Put the remaining 1/4 cup of sour cream in a pastry bag fitted with a round tip. (If you don't have access to a pastry bag, you can cut the corner off of a sealable plastic bag).

Step 9

Place a dollop of the sour cream in the center of the guacamole.

Step 10

Then, pipe multiple circles around the center dollop.

Step 11

Using a toothpick, make the spider web. Start at the center dollop, dragging it out past the outer circle of the sour cream.

Step 12

Set a plastic spider in the center of the spider web. (Make sure to remove this when serving).

Step 13

Cover and refrigerate.

Step 14

Serve with tortilla chips.
