Lazy day lunch

A friend of a friend’s makes an amazing 7-layer dip that we’ve had at a few parties now (she’s a fantastic personal chef, so it’s a high bar to aspire to!). We wanted to have a lazy lunch today that we could leave out on the table all day and just pick at it every now and again. So we tried to copy her idea and came up with this:

1 pkg cream cheese
1 onion, diced
1 tbsp minced garlic
About 1/2 cup ground beef
1 tin refried beans
1 jar salsa of your liking
1 cup shredded cheddar
1/2 bushel green onions, chopped
1 avocado, diced

This is basically a layering job. All you have to cook is the onion in a bit of butter, then add the garlic and beef, season with salt, pepper, and chili spice and sauté until browned. I put it together in a very large casserole dish so that the layers will be nice and thin. You can make this hot or mild by changing out the salsa or adding cayenne to the beef.
First, spread the cream cheese across the bottom of the dish. Top with the beef mixture, then the refried beans. Then spread the salsa over that and finally top with cheese and half of the green onions (or maybe jalapeños if you like it hot!). Bake at 350°F until its bubbly, and then top with the remaining green onions and avo when it comes out of the oven.
Serve with tortilla chips and fresh veggies like carrot sticks.
Easy, extremely tasty, and perfect for all-day grazing.
