Touchdown Taco Dip
This is probably my all-time favorite dip. It's actually a Pampered Chef recipe I got from my friend, Stephanie, years ago after she made it for her party.
Your family will love it....and not just during football season! ;)

1 can Refried beans (or this homemade recipe)
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix
2-3 garlic clove, pressed
1/2 cup (1 ounce) shredded cheddar cheese
1 medium tomato, seeded and diced (about 1 cup)
2-3 green onions with tops, thinly sliced
1/2 cup pitted ripe olives, sliced
1-2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
Additional sour cream (optional)
