Healthy 7-layer dip
Summer is upon us which means BBQs, block parties and gatherings with friends. This weekend we had a block party and the challenge is always what to bring for a pot luck. I was late getting my dish in, so settled on a healthy alternative to the favourite 7 layer dip that is always a hit. I tried to keep this one both healthy and kid friendly so it could be enjoyed by all with minimal guilt :)
Using a good processor or hand mixer, combine:
- 2 cans black beans
- 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup salsa
Spread evenly in a large rectangle dish.
Again using a food processor or hand mixer combine:
- 3 cups diced avocado
- 1 TBSP lemon juice
- salt and pepper to taste
Spread over bean mixture.
In a bowl mix together:
- 1.5 cups plain Greek yogurt
- 1 TBSP chili powder
- 1/4 TSP garlic salt
- 1/4 TSP minced dried onions (or powder)
- 1/4 TSP oregano
- 1/2 TSP paprika
- 1.5 TSP ground cumin
Spread over avocado mixture.
Layer 4: spread 3 diced tomatoes over yogurt layer
Layer 5: spread 1 bunch of chopped green onions over tomatoes
Layer 6: Sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese
I served the dip with beet and rice crackers, but feel free to use a cracker or chip of your choice. Enjoy! What is your favourite bbq dish?
