Made a huge dip. Healthy and substantial! I made this and brought it with me to a dinner party of 8 people as an appetizer. It was a big hit! I used low fat sour cream and low fat cheddar cheese. Nobody knew the difference. It was a very large dip and I ended up with plenty of leftovers which were perfect for fajitas the next day! Next time I will make it a little more spicy. I added more cheese than what was recommended. I also didn't find black beans so I used a can of mixed beans. Ripe avocados were key! Delicious! Pros: Healthy great taste filling
Good healthy appetizer Nice presentation. No way would this serve 12. Also I would omit the romaine. Pros: Pretty easy to prepare and can be prepared ahead. Cons: Needs more flavor. Spicy beans would be a good addition.
Made this for our family Super Bowl party. Super yummy! My tweaks were (1) not using prepared salsa (I just added a couple tomatoes 1/2 red onion 3 Tbsp Cilantro 1 lg. clove garlic minced and juice of 1 lime) and (2) we're not into "spicy" so we did not use jalapenos and I only used 1/4 tsp chili powder and upped the cumin to 3/4 tsp. My entire family loved it!!!
The only bad thing about this dip was that because it was heated and had dairy I didn't dare eat the leftovers after it sat out for the whole Superbowl. Next time I need to move things into the fridge sooner so we can enjoy this dip twice because it's so delicious!
I use Dannon Plain Yogurt & love it. If you want it thicker you can strain it in the fridge over night. I used to use plain old muslim that I had washed with bleach and then rinsed in vinegar to strain yogurt to make it thicker. I do not get to eat this great every day so I am not worried about it. I prefer yogurt to fat free stuff because they always put other icky stuff in to make it stay creamy & thick.... ugh go for the fat just once is what I say. Grinning now so don't beat me up.
Very easy to make and very tasty. Zapped the bean mixture & cheese and spread the sour cream the night before. Prior to serving time spread the shredded lettuce and chopped tomato and avocado then popped back into the fridge until time to eat. Really good.
