Layered Mexican Dip with Baked Lime Chips

Submitted by: CHEF_MEG
Layered Mexican Dip with Baked Lime Chips

Introduction

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.

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2 whole-wheat tortillas
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 lime, zested and cut in half

    1 (14.5 ounce) can vegetarian or fat-free refried beans
    1 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
    1 tablespoon Chef Meg's Taco Seasoning
    1/2 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
    1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican-blend cheeses
    3 green onions, chopped (both white and green parts)
    1 tablespoon cilantro, washed and chopped
    1/2 avocado, chopped
    2 Roma tomatoes, diced
    1 cup green leaf lettuce, shredded

Tips

Skip the chips and pair this with sliced cucumber, bell pepper strips, baby carrots, celery sticks or even leaves of lettuce (make little roll ups).

The serving size is one hearty cup, but you could cut that in half and serve it as an appetizer at parties.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Slice each tortilla into six wedges. Place on a baking sheet and spritz with cooking spray. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
Bake for five minutes, or until crisp. Remove from the oven immediately and squeeze on the juice of half a lime.

Combine the taco seasoning and lime zest with the Greek yogurt and mix well. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Combine the chopped avocado with the juice of the remaining half of a lime and the chopped cilantro, then set aside.

Spread the refried beans into the bottom of a 10-inch pie plate.

Layer on the Greek yogurt mixture, the black beans, cheese, and green onions.

Top with the tomatoes, lettuce and avocado.

Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to eat.

Makes 6 one cup servings with 2 baked lime chips

    This sounds like my layer dip too. Yummy! I do put black olives in for a healthy fat. It helps to melt the other fat out of our bodies. I learned this from the "Flat Belly Diet Book" I am so glad to have olives, avacados, and nuts back again. Yea! - 8/20/10

    We LOVED this dip! My husband really likes the lime tortilla chips! Since he doesn't like green onions, I left them off. On my portion of the chip, I added a little hot sauce to spice it up and it was great! Thanks, Chef Meg! - 2/9/10

    I make something similar, but I add cumin and lime juice to the black beans, I don't use any refried beans, and I keep the olives. They aren't empty calories - olives are good for you! But I don't use can - I chop up kalamata myself. YUM - 8/12/10

    A great remake! incredible and you don't lose the taste - though it helps knowing how much healthier this is! I didn't tell my son about it being "healthy" and he loved it. hahaha. Thanks for this! Oh, and I left out the cilantro - but that's just because I don't like cilantro. Not recipe's problem! - 7/31/10

    This was very good--even my daughter ate a full serving (except for the tomatoes). I was worried about the lime but it wasn't overpowering, just refreshing. I will make this again! - 2/7/10

    My go to replacements for refried beans and even low fat sour cream are pureed canned beans and non fat yogurt that I've drained with cheesecloth or a coffee filter in a collander. Sometimes put a plate on top to drain faster. Determine consistency by how long you drain it - few min. to hours. - 1/8/12

    If you dip the tortillas in hot water (nearly boiling) before baking them, you won't need the oil at all. - 1/7/13

    I love dips but don't care for chips - I do use them as a vehicle for getting the dip in my mouth, lol. So 2 chips is great - one to back up the first one in case it gets soggy :) I might give jicama a try or maybe celery and those I would probably eat. Thanks for the recipe. - 2/1/12

    Another suggestion would be to use reduced-sodium black beans to further lower the sodium. I also might use just a little low-fat or fat-free cheese to get some of that cheese flavor I love! - 8/10/10

  • The fat free greek yogurt is a great idea. it adds protien and calcium that sour cream lacks. This sounds like a great mini meal. i will probably skip the chips though. They sound great, but just two is such teaser. - 6/29/13

  • Very YUMMY! MY TWIST: I made "home-made" humus instead of refried beans, added cummin with the taco seasoning, diced red onions. I placed browned ground-turkey meat under the toms.and avacd. mix. I sprinkled a little more lime juice over the whole thing. I made torillias x2. Light grated chez on top - 9/20/12

  • I love this and make it all the time but use fat free sour cream since I end up eating more chips.... but I also add finely diced fresh jalepeno for the kick : ) - 7/16/12

    Haven't made it but it sounds good. I agree that two chips is a joke. I'd rather just eat veggies than have to stop at two chips. I would want some finely chopped olives for taste and texture myself but not a whole bunch. I would figure that is a good swap for the chips I wouldn't eat! Thanks! - 6/28/12

  • @ Moms100 that was my first thought, too much dip for so few chips, but still sounds yummy. I would probably skip the blackbeans since you have the refried, and to get more chips and fewer calories, use corn tortillas not flour? - 2/24/12

  • Greek Yogurt is a much tastier and healthier substitute in this particular case. Some jalepenos blended into the yogurt layer make this sublime. If using commercial taco seasoning, make it ahead to allow dehydrated onions to reconstitute. I'd rather skip the chips to add low fat cheddar shreds. - 2/6/12

  • This looks like a great guide to a Mexican-type salad. Leave off the refried beans and replace them with lettuce greens. Add salsa to the sour cream and taco seasoning to use as a dressing. The only problem with the original recipe is that it is short on baked chips. Who can eat only two? - 1/8/12

    This sounds wonderful and I plan to make it, but I'm not sure what to do with the tortillas after they're baked. Do I leave them in the pan and top them with the other ingredients? Or take them out and use them as dippers? Could someone send me a spark message if you know? Thanks - 2/5/10
