Frito Lay like Layered Bean Dip Recipe

Frito Lay makes awesome bean dip but my recipe is even better because on top of the beans is more flavorful goodness than just beans. My Frito Lay like beans are creamy, zesty and can be made for vegans and vegetarians alike.

Eventually after much experimentation I came up with a rice concotion that I enjoy and my family enjoys. In fact my family loves this recipe so much that I can’t keep it as leftovers in my fridge.
