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.

Southwestern Layered Bean Dip Recipe at
Combine 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 to 5 minutes.

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