    Serves: 6 

    • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 4 rashers bacon, chopped
    • 1 (400g) tin refried beans
    • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning mix
    • 250ml soured cream
    • 100g grated Cheddar cheese
    • 250g guacamole
    • 175g tomatoes, diced

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Place the chicken, 1 1/2 tablespoons of coriander and vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium heat and pan-fry the chicken breasts until lightly golden brown, no longer pink in the middle and the juices run clear, about 5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken and set aside. When cooled, cut into cubes.
    2. Place the bacon in the same frying pan and cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Mix the refried beans into the frying pan with the bacon and cook, stirring frequently, until the beans are hot and bubbling, 5 to 10 minutes. Mix the taco seasoning and soured cream together in a bowl.
    3. To assemble, spread the hot bean and bacon mixture into the bottom of an 20x20cm glass dish. Sprinkle the chicken cubes over the bean mixture, then follow with these layers: 90g of Cheddar cheese, guacamole, soured cream mixture and diced tomatoes. Sprinkle the top with 1 1/2 tablespoons of coriander, black olives, spring onions and 4 tablespoons of grated Cheddar cheese.

    This is my dip and although I am so excited to have it listed on Allrecipes, I have to add that it was edited a bit. All of the changes were minor and do not change the dip, except two: I cook the chicken and then mix it up with the cilantro and that I like to add tortilla chips sticking out around the edge of the dip and more on the side for serving. Hope that helps and you enjoy it!  -  20 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was delicious! The bacon really gave the beans a great flavor. I would like a little more green onions and a little more tomatoes than what the recipe calls for, and maybe half the sour cream... but that's just my personal taste. The recipe is easily adaptable.  -  24 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
