Skinny Seven-Layer Taco Dip!

Need an appetizer for a holiday party?  We are taking this one to a New Year's Eve party this evening. 
All the taste, without all of the guilt! 

Skinny Seven-Layer Taco Dip
Bean Layer:
    • 1 can black beans, drained & rinsed
    • 1/4 cup salsa, low sodium
    • 1 tsp. all-natural taco seasoning mix (I make mine homemade, using this recipe.)
    • 1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped
    • 1 tsp. garlic powder
White Layer:
    • 1-1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt, non-fat
Salsa Layer:
    • 1 cup salsa, low sodium
Guacamole Layer:
    • 3 medium avocados, pitted & skin removed
    • 1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped
    • 1 tsp. taco seasoning
    • 1/2 small jalapeño, finely diced
Other Layers:
    • 3 cups iceberg lettuce, finely shredded
    • 1 cup Tex Mex, Colby Jack or Cheddar cheese, shredded
    • 1/4 cup black olives, pitted & sliced
  1. In a small bowl, mash beans with a fork. Add remaining Bean Layer ingredients and mix. Spread the mixture in 8 x 11 baking (clear) dish or onto any other large serving platter.
  2. Spread White Layer over the beans followed by a Salsa Layer.
  3. In a small bowl, mash avocados with a fork and add remaining ingredients from Guacamole Layer. Mix and spread on top of Salsa Layer.
  4. Place a layer of lettuce over the Guacamole Layer and top with cheese. Garnish with black olives. Serve immediately with any healthy tortilla chips.
