Black Bean and Loaded Veggie 7 Layer Dip

I totally stole this idea from somewhere on Pinterest, but I own this recipe.  I added and adapted and altered so I'm claiming this one.  It was a hit.  A HEALTHY hit!  Enjoy and you're welcome.  Happy almost football season.


1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup low fat sour cream
3/4 cup shredded lowfat mexican blend cheese
1 lime
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
3 avocados
1 Tbsp chipotle flavored sea salt seasoning
1 Tsp ground cumin
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/2 cup diced orange bell pepper
1/2 cup diced cucumber
1/2 cup diced cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup yellow corn
1 seeded and diced jalepeno
Blue corn tortilla chips, for dipping!


Make the DAY OF.  The juices from the vegetables tend to get a bit watery, but it is so fresh and fantastic no one will care.  Use a spoon to serve onto chips.

Black bean layer first:

Using a handheld mixer, blend black beans with half lime juice, chipotle pepper seasoning, cumin and 1/4 cup of the chopped fresh cilantro.  Spread into a pan (smaller than a 9x13 preferably)

Avocado layer:

Using same handheld mixer, blend three avocados with remaining lime juice and a dash of salt and pepper.  Spread over black bean layer.

Spread sour cream over avocados, then sprinkle with shredded cheese.  Finally, mix together all chopped vegetables along with the remaining 1/4 chopped fresh cilantro and sprinkle with more salt and pepper (and another quick squeeze of a lime if available).  Spread evenly on top of all the previous layers.

Keep chilled and serve with chips.  Ta da!
