This is a fun and tasty dip for Halloween. It's easy to make, tastes good, and always get gobbled up at a party. All this picture is missing is a spider. I should have created an olive spider or something. Or even just put a plastic spider on it. Anywho...it tasted delish. :)
1 lb. ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
1 can (16 oz.) refried beans
1 pound ripe tomatoes, chopped
6 green onions, trimmed and chopped (about 3/4 cup)
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 package (8 oz.) cheese (choose your fav)
1/2 -1 cup sour cream
Tortilla chips for dipping
1. Cook ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat, until beef is browned. Stir in 3/4 cup water and taco seasoning. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in refried beans until well combined and heated throught. Set aside.
2. In a medium-size bowl, mix together tomatoes, 3/4 cup green onions, the sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper.
3. In a shallow serving bowl, spread out the beef mixture. Then put sour cream in a ziploc bag, cut off the corner and squeeze out into a web design. Put the tomato mixture around the edges. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the tomato mixture. (If you want to make this normally, you can layer the ingredients.) Serve at room temperature.
