Directions:

  1. Place the beans, sour cream, chili powder, and cumin in a food processor or blender, and process until smooth. Spread the mixture over the bottom of a 9-inch glass pie pan. Top with the cheese, followed by the scallions, olives, and jalapeņos, in that order.
  2. Serve at room temperature or hot. If using a microwave oven, heat uncovered on high power for 5 minutes, or until the edges are bubbly and the cheese is melted. If using a conventional oven, cover loosely with foil and bake at 350°F for 20 minutes. Serve with baked tortilla chips.
