  1. hello i see in the recipe that there are i mix that into the first batch of sour cream...
    thanks or is there another avocado mixture as you mention in the recipe
    always enjoy seeing whats on the menu,..
    thank you ter

    1. It looks like the avocado layer goes on after the first layer of sour cream mixture and sandwiched with the two layers of sour cream mixtures. That step in the process was left off. So Beans, sour cream mixture, avocado layer, sour cream- mayo and taco seasoning mixture, then the toppings.

  2. I was wondering what I missed. I'm kind of thinking beans, first sour cream mixture, avocados, 2nd sour cream mixture. Looks yummy. I haven't tried cooked avocado. May have to try this.

  3. Sorry for the confusion on the avocado layer. I've corrected the instructions now, and I hope if you try this you will like it as much as we do.
