Layered Taco Dip

This pretty dip replaces fatty refried beans with a delightful combination of black beans and goat cheese. Giving up all the fat in traditional refried beans means you can enjoy the flavor that the goat cheese brings to the dip without any guilt! Cover the avocado layer thoroughly with the other layers so it doesn't discolor.
  • 1 (16 oz.) can black beans -- rinsed and drained
  • 2 oz. goat cheese
  • 1 tsp. taco seasoning
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 T. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 c. bottled salsa -- choose your favorite variety
  • 1 c. fat free sour cream
  • 2 T. bias sliced green onions
  • 2 T. sliced black olives

Place the black beans in a food processor and process until smooth. Add the goat cheese and taco seasoning and process again until smooth. Using a plastic spatula, spread the mixture evenly on the bottom of an 8-inch square serving dish (or another dish with similar volume).

Rinse the food processor container. Peel and slice the avocado into one inch pieces and place that, the lime juice and salt in the food processor. Process the mixture until smooth and spread over the black bean mixture.

Pour the salsa of your choice evenly over the avocado mixture. Spread the sour cream over the salsa and sprinkle the top with the green onions and black olives. Serve with tortilla chips.
