Healthy 7-layer dip

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 :)

Layer 1:

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.  

Layer 2: 

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.  

Layer 3: 

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?
