Six layer dip - Six layer dip
Hi there, I have a delicious recipe for a six layer dip and believe it is mind blowing! I recently made it for ap arty and it was too good. Six layer Dip 2 cloves garlic 2 teaspoons kosher salt 1(15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed 1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed 2 teaspoons chili powder 2 tablespoons water 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 2 cups lowfat shredded Cheddar 2 ripe avocados, preferably Hass 1 jalapeno, stemmed, finely chopped, (with seeds for more heat) 2 cups chopped romaine lettuce 1 1/2 cups nonfat yogurt, preferably Greek 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, leaves and some stems, roughly chopped, plus for garnish 3 ripe medium tomatoes, diced 5 scallions (white and green), thinly sliced Baked tortilla chips, for dipping On a cutting board, smash the garlic cloves, sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of the salt, and, with the flat side of a large knife, mash and smear the mixture to a coarse paste. Put the garlic, beans, chili powder, water, and olive oil in the bowl of a food processor and blend until smooth. Spread in the bottom of a 2 quart casserole or gratin dish, or in individual sized dishes, as desired. Scatter the cheese over the beans. Halve and seed the avocados, then mash with the jalapeno and another teaspoon of salt in a small bowl. Spread a layer of the avocado over the cheese, and then scatter the lettuce on top. Mix the yogurt with the cilantro and then spread over the lettuce. Add a layer of tomatoes and finally scatter the scallions on top. Chill until ready to serve. Garnish with a few cilantro sprigs and serve with baked chips. Bon appetite!:)
