Kitchen Adventures: Layered Fiesta Dip

Now that the weather is warming up, and I’m looking forward to spending more time outside with friends, I wanted to concoct a dip made with my favorite TexMex-inspired ingredients. After pulling random items off the grocery shelves, I put together what I like to call a layered fiesta dip, perfect for snacking with a beverage, on a porch, with good friends and seasonable weather.

 

Ingredients:

8 oz package reduced-fat cream cheese, softened

1 cup plain, non-fat Greek yogurt

Package Hidden Valley Ranch Spicy Ranch dressing mix (or regular ranch if you prefer)

Guacamole

Small jar diced green chiles, drained well

Can of fire roasted corn, drained well

Can of black beans, rinsed and drained well

Can of Ro-Tel tomatoes with lime juice and cilantro

Jar of salsa, as mild or spicy as you like

Bag of shredded cheese (I used a taco cheese blend)

Green onions, separated into white parts & green parts

Cilantro
