Southwestern Layered Bean Dip

January/February 2007

Your rating: None Average: 4 (127 votes)

Plenty of black beans, salsa and chopped fresh vegetables mean a healthy amount of dietary fiber in this Tex-Mex layered dip. We use reduced-fat sour cream along with full-fat (and full-flavored) cheese to make the dip lighter without compromising great taste. Be sure to have lots of baked tortilla chips on hand when you serve it.

"I absolutely agree about the unrealistic portion size. The dip was delicious, but 7 grams of fat per half a cup is still not what I would call a "low-fat" snack. But.. DELICIOUS! :) "

I made this last night for a few friends who came over. Let me put it to you this way, there were only 5 of us and the ENTIRE thing was gone in about 20 mins! It was so good, and the guys had no clue it was a healthier version of what they were use to. One of them even commented, "I've never had this type of dip hot before, it's usually served cold. This is SO MUCH BETTER!" Kudos to Eating Well!
