  1. In an 11 x 7-inch glass dish, layer refried beans, guacamole, salsa, shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream.
  2. To create the flag’s star field, use a table knife to outline
a rectangular box in the upper left side of the sour cream and fill with sliced black olives. To create the flag’s stripes, cut grape tomatoes in half, lengthwise, and arrange them in stripes across the sour cream.
  3. Serve with tortilla chips.
