    I don't see why those things wouldn't work. You could add guacamole, pico de gallo, refried beans, tortilla strips, etc. I probably wouldn't add in beans unless they were canned black beans that come in a seasoning.

    how much of a difference would it make if i added refried beans? because i feel like my sauce needs beans.

    Beans will give it an additional meaty texture. That's what the layers are all about, contrasting textures and flavors. You also might consider subbing out the cream cheese for sour cream. Cream cheese is pretty thick.

    Devin.

    I have made what we called 7 layer dip for many years and eaten it at many different potlucks and never was there a grain of rice in it.

    Most ingredients would be  cream cheese thinned with a little milk, refried beans, seasoned ground beef or shredded beef or chicken,

    chopped tomatoes or salsa, shredded cheese,sour creme, avocado. You can also add sliced olives and other items you like.

    But rice is not usually used.
