Slim Six-Layer Dip

I had a party at my house this weekend and my friend Delilah brought this yummy delight to share.  I’d highly recommend especially with SuperBowl festivities this weekend.

Slim Six-Layer Dip


1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

2 15-ounce cans red kidney beans, drained and rinsed

2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

2 teaspoons chili paste or your favorite hot sauce

2 cups mexican shredded cheese

1 1/2 cups plain nonfat yogurt, preferably Greek

5 scallions, white and green parts, thinly sliced

3/4 cup fresh cilantro

1 jalapeno, stemmed and thinly sliced

3 ripe avocados, preferably Hass

2 cups finely shredded romaine lettuce

3 ripe medium tomatoes, diced

2 teaspoons fresh lime juice

Kosher salt


  1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, beans and chili paste and heat until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Using a potato masher or fork, mash the beans. Remove from the heat, add 2 tablespoons water and mash until somewhat smooth. Spread in a 2-quart glass casserole dish.
  2. Scatter the cheese over the beans.
  3. Halve and pit the avocados; scoop out the flesh into a bowl and mash with 1 teaspoon salt and the lemon juice. Spread the avocado over the cheese.
  4. Reserve some scallions, cilantro and jalapeno for garnish. Pulse the yogurt with the remaining scallions, cilantro and jalapeno in a blender or food processor. Spread over the avocado.
  5. Top with the lettuce.
  6. Season the tomatoes with another teaspoon salt and scatter over the lettuce.
  7. Top with the reserved scallions, cilantro and jalapeno.
