Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Position rack 8 inches from heat source. Preheat broiler to high. Place poblanos on a foil-lined baking sheet. Broil, turning once, until charred and blistered, about 10 minutes per side. Transfer to a bowl; cover with plastic wrap and let stand for 10 minutes. Remove the skins, stems and seeds. Coarsely chop the flesh; set aside.

  • Meanwhile, heat a cast-iron skillet over high heat until hot, about 3 minutes. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add corn; cook, stirring often, until blistered and charred, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat. Transfer the corn to a plate; let cool completely, about 10 minutes.

  • Combine refried beans and 1 tablespoon lime juice in a medium bowl; spread evenly in the bottom of an 8-cup trifle dish or a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Combine yogurt, sour cream, cumin, paprika, chile powder and the remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice in a medium bowl; stir until smooth. Spread evenly over the beans in the dish.

  • Layer guacamole, pico de gallo, the chopped roasted poblanos, cheese, the charred corn, lettuce and cilantro over the sour cream mixture. Cover and chill for 2 hours before serving.


To make ahead: Roast poblanos and corn (Steps 1 and 2) and refrigerate for up to 1 day.

This is a great spin on a classic party dip. I like to prepare it in a shallow dish so you can get some of each layer on every chip. Read More
