Spooky Eight Layer Bean Dip

I may have just added the spider web as an excuse to make an eight layer bean dip for a Halloween party! I know that these kinds of bean dips are common and made frequently, but I'm actually pretty proud of mine, it's so yummy! The picture shows the bean dip in a smaller pan, but I'm going to give the recipe for a 9x13, just because it's easier. If you want it smaller, just half it, there's really no science to it.
1 can refried beans
1 8oz pkge sour cream
1 8oz pkge cream cheese
1 pkge dry taco mix
1 1/2 cups guacamole or diced avocados
1 can sliced olives
1 bunch slices scallions
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese
3 tomatoes seeded and chopped
1 head romaine or iceburg lettuce chopped
With your kitchen mixer combine sour cream, cream cheese and taco seasoning. Beat until smooth. In 9x13 inch pan spread refried beans, cream cheese mixture, guacamole, olives, scallions, tomatoes, cheese and lettuce. Chill until served. Serve with tortilla chips.

What a cute idea! Halloween is long gone but spiderweb or not this sounds delish.
