  2. Process ingredients for White Bean Layer in a food processor to blend. Spoon into foil mold; spread evenly. Top with salsa.

  3. Mix ingredients for Refried Bean Layer in a bowl. Drop spoonfuls on salsa; carefully spread evenly. Sprinkle with scallions.

  4. Mix ingredients for Sour Cream Layer in a bowl. Drop spoonfuls on scallions, then spread carefully (disturb scallions as little as possible); mound layer slightly down center. Top with Cheddar cheese. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.
