This past Friday I was lucky enough to be invited to see Florence and the Machine with my good friend Marco! We had decided in advance to tailgate a bit before the show and since we were meeting with a few friends I wanted to bring a crowd pleasing appetizer. This definitely fit the bill and was healthy to boot! It makes a lot, so you could always half the recipe if need be. Between this dip and an incredible performance I would say the night as a whole was a big success!
This dip has 5 parts, 3 are easy and the other 2 take some work. I’d say it’s definitely worth it though! The salsa and crema are amazing on their own, but when put together in this dip- MMM!
You will need:
1 can fat free refried beans
2 cups 0% fat Greek yogurt or lite sour cream
1/4 cup cilantro
2-3 chipotle peppers in sauce
5 Roma tomatoes, cored and diced
1/4 red onion minced
1/3 cup fat free feta cheese
2 tbs chopped cilantro
2 avocados, chopped
1 tbs olive oil
1 cup shredded lettuce
1/4 cup diced Roma tomatoes
First you want to make the salsa (layer 3) since that will need about an hour to chill. Mix together the tomatoes, onion, cilantro, oil and feta. When you chop the avocado, squeeze the line onto it, this will keep it green and make the dip look nicer. Gently fold in the avocado and then refrigerate for at least an hour.
Next up is layer 2, the crema! This is a chipotle lime crema and I love it on pretty much anything Mexican. It comes together super easy if you have an immersion blender, if not a food processor would work too!
Blend together the yogurt, cilantro, juice if 1 lime and the peppers. Chipotle peppers are hot, so add between 1-3 depending on how spicy you want it. Remember you can always add more later, but you can’t take them out. Once blended taste and add more lime if needed.
This made more than I needed for the dip, but it keeps in the fridge for a few days, just stir before using.
Now it is time to layer!
In a 10 x 7″ dish evenly spread the beans on the bottom.
Next up, crema:
Avocado feta salsa:
Serve immediately or chill for a few hours. This is better when everything is fresh so you could always jut assemble right before an event if you prepare the components in advance. This was super yummy and hood for you. Use a hearty chip for dipping and enjoy!!
