Walter's Bean Dip

Walter's Famous Eight-Layer Bean Dip
Our good friend Walter passed away from ALS on May 19th.
To correspond with his memorial being held in his hometown in Virginia, all of his Reno friends are getting together tomorrow to celebrate his life and share stories about him.
And drink Bud Light in his honor.
Walter would make this amazing vegetarian bean dip anytime there was a party. Until now, I never knew what was in it except that it was delicious and really killed my stomach, in a good way.
We managed to procure his recipe through various channels. For the amount of e-mails exchanged, it was as if I was getting secret codes to a bank vault.
I feel funny sharing it with you so I'll just give you the gist of it.
Refried beans, cheese, Morningstar vegetarian sausage, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, more cheese, vegetarian chili, jalapeƱos (twice the amount a normal person can consume) and yes, more cheese.
Layer it up and bake.
Walter claims it took over three hours to bake. I think he may have been drunk when he said it.
So in tribute to one of the nicest and most sincere people I've ever known, we shall eat the bean dip. And run for the bathroom immediately afterward.

"We may not be here for a long time; but we're here for a good time."
