Layered Bean Dip

I went to a party and brought this layered bean dip along with corn chips. Everyone there ate some and then came back for more. I left with an empty dish. 

I made it with black beans vs pinto just for fun, feel free to use whatever you enjoy the most

2 cups cooked and drained black beans (cook them with celery, garlic, and onions for flavor)
1 Avocado
Juice of 1 lemon
2 cloves garlic
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 cup salsa
1/3 cup black olives, chopped
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped 

Mash up 2 cups of cooked beans (black or pinto) and spread at the bottom of a 9x9 glass dish or pie pan. Blend the avocado, lemon juice, garlic, and salt & pepper together. Then spread that on top of the beans. 
Put a layer of cashew cheese on top of the guacamole. If using daiya cheese sprinkle it on after the salsa. 
Spread salsa over the cheese and sprinkle with olives and cilantro
