This is Part Dos of my Healthy Twist on Super Bowl Treats. It is pretty hard to top my Lightened Up Boneless Buffalo Wings, but this dip comes pretty close. Next to boneless buffalo strips, 7 layer dip is my next favorite Super Bowl snack. However, with all the cheese, sour cream, guacamole and re-fried beans, it is not exactly the best treat for your body. So I decided to put my own spin on 7 Layer Dip.
This black bean dip gets a wonderful spicy and a smoky flavor from chipotles and adobo sauce, and the addition of tomatoes, cilantro and lime freshens the dip making it reminicent of pico de gallo. Topped with a little bit of shreeded cheese and low-fat sour cream, your fellow football watchers will never miss their old 7 layer dip.
