I made this for my family and it was gone in minutes. This is a layer dip without the beans. Beans aren't exactly unhealthy because they give you protein and fiber but if you leave them out and sub in some plain Greek Yogurt you can save some calories.
- 2-3 Avocados from Mexico
- 1/4 Cup plain Greek Yogurt
- 2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
- Juice from 1 lime
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/2-1 cup of your favorite Salsa
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup light sour cream
- Chopped green onions for garnish
Scoop out the Avocado and mash it up. Mix in the Greek Yogurt, cilantro, lime juice, garlic powder, and onion powder. Mix well. Spread in the bottom of a 8x8 clear pan. Then layer in the salsa, trying to keep some of the extra juice out (so it's more chunky.) Then either layer with cheese or sour cream, whichever you want on top. Add the onions for a garnish.
Here's the thing that was surprising--the avocado combination was deliciously avocado-tasting but still kind of tasted like refried beans, with a similar texture. So it turned out to be a great substitute and we didn't miss the beans at all.
