 Mexican Layered Dip
 1 large bag baked tortilla chips
 1 can ff refried beans(15oz?)
 1/2 packet Old El Paso taco seasoning
 1/2 c your favorite salsa
 8 oz ff cream cheese
 2 c shredded lettuce
 1 c ff fancy shredded cheddar cheese
 3/4 c chopped green onion
 1 c chopped tomato
 Mix together the refried beans and taco seasoning and spread in the bottom of
 2 small or 1 large shallow serving dishes.  In a food processor, blender or
 with a hand mixer combine the salsa and cream cheese (it will be runny) and
 pour over the beans.   Layer the other ingredients in order ending with the
 tomatoes.  Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.  Serve with baked
 tortilla chips - my favorite brand is Tostitos.  I sometimes garnish by
 edging the dish with chips.  
 If you want to work ahead, I prepare all the ingredients and do the first 2
 steps of preparation (layer the beans and cream cheese/salsa mixture),
 refrigerate for up to 2 days and layer the rest of the ingredients just
 before serving.
