1 (16-ounce) can refried beans with green chiles
1/4 cup bottled salsa
2/3 cup bottled ranch salad dressing
2 teaspoons taco seasoning
1 1/2 cups finely chopped cooked chicken

1/2 of a (2 1/4-ounce) can chopped pitted ripe olives, drained
Shredded lettuce

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, combine refried beans and salsa. Spread refried bean mixture in a 2-quart rectangular dish. In a small bowl, combine ranch salad dressing and taco seasoning; stir in chicken.
  2. Spoon on top of the beans in an even layer. Spoon guacamole in small mounds on top of the chicken mixture. Carefully spread to an even layer.
  3. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes or up to 6 hours before serving. Just before serving, place Graveyard Characters into dip. Sprinkle the graves with chopped olives and shredded lettuce. Serve with tortilla chips.
