Layered Mexican Bean Dip

    Weight Watchers Layered Mexican Bean Dip


    So, we always called this 7-Layer Dip at our house, and I was surprised to find how low-cal and good for you this yummy snack is! Here's a Weight Watchers version. Combine it with some baked chips and get your snack on, just in time for the Superbowl!




    Layered Mexican Bean Dip

  • 16 oz fat-free canned refried beans

    3 medium avocado, Hass, finely mashed

    1/4 teaspoon salt

    1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

    1 cup(s) fat-free sour cream

    2 tablespoons fajita seasoning mix

    1/2 cup(s) Weight Watchers Reduced Fat Shredded Mexican-Style Cheese

    1 small tomato(es), chopped

    2 medium scallion(s) (aka green onions), sliced

    10 medium olive(s), black, sliced or chopped

    2 tablespoons cilantro, fresh, chopped

Spread beans evenly over bottom of a 9- X 13-inch glass baking dish or a medium-size glass bowl.

In a small bowl, combine avocado, salt and lemon juice. Spread avocado mixture over beans; top with sour cream.

Sprinkle fajita seasoning over sour cream layer. Next, layer remaining ingredients on top in order listed.

Serve immediately or chill until ready to use. Yields about 1/4 cup of dip per serving. Makes 16 servings.


This dip is also great topped with diced bell peppers and shredded lettuce.  Add jalapeno slices for extra heat. Only 2 points per serving.
