  • Active Time 20m

12 servings, about 1/2 cup each

Our take on this classic party dip is made with lower-fat sour cream, plenty of fiber-rich beans and vegetables—and it's still just as delicious. Scoop it up with tortilla chips.

Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 1, cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. To serve, continue with Steps 2 & 3.

ingredients

  • One 16-ounce can fat-free refried beans, preferably spicy
  • One 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed
  • 4 scallions, sliced
  • 1/2 cup prepared salsa
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 cup pickled jalapeno slices, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1 medium avocado, chopped
  • 1/4 cup canned sliced black olives (optional)

directions

Combine the refried beans, black beans, scallions, salsa, cumin, chili powder and jalapenos in a medium bowl. Transfer to a shallow 2-quart microwave-safe dish; sprinkle with cheese.

Microwave on high until the cheese is melted and the beans are hot, 3-5 minutes.

Spread the sour cream evenly over the hot bean mixture, then scatter with lettuce, tomato, avocado and olives (if using).
