See below

1st layer::
Spread 1 can refried beans on a nice-sized round platter a little larger than a dinner plate.

2nd Layer:
Spread 1 C. Guacamole over beans (or mash 3 ripe avocados with 1 tsp. lemon juice) In a pinch, I've even used 1 C. Guacamole dip and it works fine.

3rd layer:
Mix 1/2 C. sour cream with 1/2 C. Mayo and 1/2 package Taco Seasoning and spread over 2nd layer

4th layer:
Grate 1/2 C. each yellow cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese and mix together and sprinkle over top of 3rd layer

5th layer:
sliced black olives
3-4 sliced green onions (use green part too)
Chopped tomatoes
Scatter all over top

Chill serveral hours or overnight and serve with Tortilla Chips and salsa.
