These bean cakes are yummy and great for you. Served with the salsa, it makes a very colorful and festive presentation. I serve these with a lite side salad. Plenty of protein and fiber. Even my meat loving hubby loves this meal.

Layered Mexican Dip with Baked Lime Chips
Very Good 4.5/5
(52 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 is a great low-cal alternative to mash potatoes. Surprisingly I think it tastes similar to the point you won't miss them even! Cauliflower with cream cheese & cheddar cheese to top. A great side dish!

This is an easy to prepare basic spaghetti sauce. It is easy to add veggies or meats as you desire. And it's much healthier than the store-bought jars! Be sure to look for cans of whole tomatoes and tomato paste with no added salt.

(Comparison - Most store-bought sauces have 80+ calories and 400+ mg sodium in a 1/2 cup serving. This sauce has 75 calories and 300 mg of sodium in 1 cup serving!)

Tomatoes form the base, 4 beans and lentils make this hearty. Meat and dairy products can be added, but are not necessary. Makes 16 hearty servings that each have 50% of your daily fiber intake.
