This is my number 1 requested dish for potlucks. Everyone loves it!
Makes 8-10 cups dip
1/4 cup sliced black olives
2 cups finely shredded cheddar cheese
12 oz. chili sauce
1 lb. ground sirloin
taco seasoning packet
1 box rice-a-roni, spanish or mexican rice flavor
1 lb. sour cream
2 cups refried black beans
Prepare rice as directed, set aside. In medium pan, brown ground beef with taco seasoning until cooked through and broken up into crumbles (the crumblier the better). Set aside.
In large bowl, layer: beans, then beef, then rice, then sour cream, then chili sauce, then cheese, then black olives. Make sure to smooth each layer before adding the next to ensure layers are even with every bite.
Can be served warm or cold. Our family likes it both ways!
