Default Mexican Layered Dip

(Whether you have WW or not you can look it up on their website and the recipe will come up, I couldn't post the link, just search "mexican dip")

Has anyone tried making this Mexican layered dip? I used to make the normal fatty version all the time and my friends and family loved it. They asked me to make it again for another occasion and I wondered if I used the WW recipe if they could tell the difference. I used this recipe and used low fat tortilla chips from Trader Joes, and I could have 18 chips for 2 points and 1/16th of the dip for 2 points. And everyone LOVED it- no one noticed it was so much healthier ! Which is always a good thing when you can make dishes healthier and keep the same great taste !!

16 oz fat-free canned refried beans
3 medium avocado, Hass, finely mashed
1/4 tsp table salt
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 cup(s) fat-free sour cream
2 tbsp Old El Paso Fajita Seasoning Mix, or other brand
1/2 cup(s) Weight Watchers Reduced Fat Shredded Mexican-Style Cheese
1 small tomato(es), chopped
2 medium scallion(s), sliced
10 medium olive(s), black, sliced or chopped
2 tbsp cilantro, fresh, chopped

* Spread beans evenly over bottom of a 9- X 13-inch glass baking dish or a medium-size glass bowl.

* In a small bowl, combine avocado, salt and lemon juice. Spread avocado mixture over beans; top with sour cream.

* Sprinkle fajita seasoning over sour cream layer. Next, layer remaining ingredients on top in order listed.

* Serve immediately with jicama slices and other fresh vegetables for dipping, or chill until ready to use. Yields about 1/4 cup of dip per serving.

Yum! It's chilling in the fridge now for dinner tonight- Followed recipe except I did not use scallions or fajita seasoning since I didn't have either on hand so I used regular diced yellow onions and cumin/chili powder/garlic in place of fajita seasoning- should be good! TFS the recipe!
