Skinny Seven Layer Dip

Rated as 4.79 out of 5 Stars

"The traditional 7 layer dip can be rather fattening, so here is a fresher, lighter alternative. It requires a tad more work, but I assure you it is worth it! I always have people asking for this recipe."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • This recipe is so diverse. You could also add Mexican rice if you wanted, or use spinach for lettuce instead of shredded. Sometimes I make this as a salad by doubling the lettuce and halving all the other ingredients, and dollop them on top of the lettuce instead of spreading! This will stay for about 2 days in the fridge.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Great recipe! I like to process canned black beans in my food processor until they are the semi-chunky consistency of refried beans. It gives everyone the expected texture of the refried beans f...

Really very good. I loved the comparative lightness of this recipe. Made as described except for omitting the corn and using only half of the pepper. Thank you.

great recipe really customizable!

Excellent! Brought it to 4 th of July bbq...didn't tell anyone it was "skinny". Everyone loved it! Thank you so much! The only change I made is I made my own salsa.

This was delish! There are a lot of ingredients, but it's worth it. I did forget to add the corn, but I followed the recipe exactly otherwise. I will definitely make this again!

Excellent recipe. Whipped up real quick for Cinco de Mayo party. It makes a lot! (40 servings), so I recommend either halving the recipe, or plan on having leftovers for the next week.

Omg this was the hit of my party! I swapped out the sour cream with fat-free Greek yogurt and I added cumin to the spices. I also used the entire jar of salsa. Delish, it's what everyone kept r...

This was greeted by oohs and aahs as our Thanksgiving appetizer. I put one Tbsp. of chili powder, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp salt (for the taco seasoning). I included all the seeds with the jalapeno...

I would make this again. Made this for a group meeting and everyone liked it! Great flavor and they could not tell that it had a jalapeno pepper in it!
