I needed an appetizer last week and wanted something new. I found this recipe the day before and thought it was a good chance to try it.
1/2 LB sausage
1 med onion
1 tsp garlic salt
1-7oz can green chili salsa (Salsa Verde)
2 Tb sliced black olives (I never measure-just sprinkle on top)
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese
1-15 oz can refried beans
1 small can chopped green chilis
1 cup sour cream
1-2 green onions, sliced
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 avocado, chunked
Brown sausage, onion and garlic salt. Drain fat. In a pie plate, layer beans, meat mixture, green chilis, sour cream, green salsa, green onions, both cheeses and olives. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes until hot and cheese is melted. Top with avocado chunks and serve with torilla chips. Yum!
