Warm Taco Dip

My mom made a version of this years's extremely easy and the components can be made the day before and then put together when you're ready to serve.  Just spread the meat mixture in your serving plate and refrigerate and have the sour cream topping refrigerated until ready to spread.

1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
1 package taco seasoning mix
3/4 cup water
1  14 to 15 ounce can re fried beans
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded, cored and finely diced
1 pint sour cream
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
Shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
Black olive slices (optional)
Sliced green onions (optional)
Shredded lettuce (optional)
Diced tomato (optional)

In a large saute pan brown the ground meat and then drain.  Add the taco seasoning mix and 3/4 cup water and the diced jalapeno.  Work in the re fried beans over the heat until all is combined.
Transfer the mixture to a large pie plate or quiche dish.
Bake at 350F until nice and hot, about 20 minutes.
While the meat mixture is baking, combine the sour cream with the chili powder and cumin.  Spread over the baked meat mixture and sprinkle with cheese and any or all of the optional toppings.
Serve warm with taco chips!
