Layered Mexican Dip with Baked Lime Chips
Very Good 4.4/5
(55 ratings)

My dip has all the flavor of the original, but it's much easier on the waistline. I prefer to eat this "dip" with a fork or raw vegetables.

This reminds me of tuna salad because of the mayo and celery. It's a good sandwich filling for vegetarians or those trying to get more beans into their diet. To make it vegan, just use Veganaise for the mayo.

Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

So this is something that my mom used to make, but now that I am vegetarian I wanted to try it and see if it worked. This is an experiment. I will keep updating the recipe as I go. It may need a bit of olive oil or salt or other things. So make this at your own risk! PLUS I had all these things in the fridge so why not give it a whirl?!

*edit - it needs a little olive oil and salt, add to taste.

I love this as my main dish but you can add some grilled chicken if you just can't live without meat! It makes great leftovers to take to work for lunch too.
