This is actually a dish that I can really dig into. I love dips, especially beans dips. YUM! And I love tostitos, almost as much as I love dips and any reason to put them together I’m game for. This healthy 7 Layer Dip is a perfect dish to snack on and it’s also great for parties & get togethers!

Mexican 7 Layer Dip
2 cans black beans, rinsed & drained
4 scallions, white part only
1 cup guacamole
1 1/2-oz. jar roasted red peppers, drained and finely chopped
1 cup fat-free sour cream
2 tbsp reduced-sodium taco seasoning
1 medium bunch parsley, cleaned and chopped
4 scallions, green part only, chopped
1/4 cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 can black olives, sliced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
sliced jalapenos (optional)
Place beans into a food processor with green onion. Run until smooth. Spread evenly on the bottom of a deep glass 3-quart baking dish.
Spread guacamole over the bean layer. Sprinkle the drained, chopped red peppers over the guacamole layer.
In a small bowl mix the sour cream and taco seasoning. Then gently smooth over red pepper layer.
Clean and chop the parsley and tops of the green onions together and place on top of sour cream. Sprinkle low fat shredded cheddar cheese on top of herbs.
Quarter cherry tomatoes, and slice black olives and loosely sprinkle over shredded cheese.
Season with salt, pepper and chili flakes (if using).
Garnish with a couple jalapeno slices if using. Serve with baked, low fat tortilla chips or plain old tortilla chips, whatever you’ve got. Enjoy!
