To make the roasted corn salsa: Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the corn kernels and stir to coat in the oil. Season with salt. Cook until the corn kernels are browned and blistered, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and pour into a bowl. While still hot, add the cilantro, chile, lime juice, onion and the remaining tablespoon olive oil. Stir to combine. Season with salt, if needed, and a couple turns of black pepper. Allow to cool to room temperature.
Spread the Refried Beans on the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch baking dish in an even layer.
Carefully spread the Guacamole in an even layer over the beans.
Mix together in a medium bowl the sour cream, coriander, smoked paprika and 1 teaspoon salt until thoroughly combined. Carefully spread the sour cream on top of the layer of Guacamole.
To complete the remaining layers, sprinkle the Cotija evenly over the corn salsa. Top the Cotija with the radishes. Sprinkle the green onions on top. Drizzle with hot sauce, if desired. Serve with the limey tortilla chips.
Yield:2 1/2 cups
Heat the oil in a 12-inch cast-iron pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic. Season with 1 teaspoon salt. Cook until the garlic and onion are softened and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Add the beans, green chiles, chipotles and sauce. Season with the remaining teaspoon salt. Stir to combine until the beans are coated, then cook for 2 minutes. Add the chicken broth and stir to incorporate. Increase the heat to medium-high. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer until the chicken broth is slightly reduced and thickened to a gravy, 10 to 12 minutes. Turn off the heat and transfer the beans to a food processor with a blade attachment or to a high-speed blender. Puree until smooth. Season with salt.
In a large bowl, add the avocados, cilantro, lime zest and juice and salt. Mash until smooth but still slightly chunky.

When blending hot liquid, first let it cool for five minutes or so, then transfer it to a blender, filling only halfway. Put the lid on, leaving one corner open. Cover the lid with a kitchen towel to catch splatters, and pulse until smooth.
