Lightened Up 7-Layer Dip


Here is a lighter version of a 7 -Layer Dip that is heavy on fresh veggies and uses nonfat refried beans and low-fat yogurt instead of sour cream. 

As a lifelong connoisseur of taco dips, I can attest to its tastiness. You might like to make it with spicier beans and add sliced black olives or chopped jalapeƱo.

Happy Cooking and Enjoy the big game!!
