Make the pico de gallo: Finely chop the tomatoes and transfer to a medium bowl. Cut the jalapenos in half and remove the ribs and seeds, then finely chop and add to the bowl. Add the onion, cilantro, and salt and stir to combine. Set aside.
Make the rice: Heat the canola oil in a small pot set over medium heat. Peel and finely chop the garlic, then add to the pot when the oil is hot. Cook for 30 seconds, then add the cumin and cayenne pepper and cook for another 10 seconds, stirring frequently. Add the rice and cook for 1 minute, stirring often. Add the water, tomato paste, and salt, and stir well to combine. Cover the pot and bring to a boil, then turn the heat to low and cook until the rice is tender, about 15 minutes.
Make the refried beans: Heat the canola oil in a small pot set over medium heat. Peel and finely chop the garlic, then add to the pot when the oil is hot. Cook for 30 seconds, than add the can of beans and the liquid. Bring the beans to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the mixture is thick but still has some liquid remaining, about 10 minutes.
Make the guacamole: Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Scoop the flesh out of each half and into a medium bowl. Use a fork to gently mash the avocado (leave some large chunks) and sprinkle the lime juice over the avocado. Peel and chop the garlic, then sprinkle the salt over the garlic. Use the edge of your knife to scrape the salt over the garlic – you’ll end up with a paste. Transfer the paste to the bowl and add the cilantro, then mash the mixture to combine. Don’t overdo it – you want some chunks of avocado to remain.
Assemble the dip: Make sure the beans and rice are hot so that the cheese melts. If necessary, reheat both.
Spread the refried beans in the bottom of a 9” glass pie plate or other similiarly-sized dish. Spread the shredded cheese evenly over the beans. Spread the rice over the cheese. Top with the guacamole, sour cream, and pico de gallo (the order really doesn’t matter, but finishing with the pico de gallo is easier since the guac and sour cream are easier to spread over the rice).
