Two. More. Days. Are you ready? I sure am. I’ve made, and eaten enough snacks to get me good and primed for this Superbowl Sunday. This is one of my personal favorites. It’s a classic! A pile of my favorite ingredients: Beans, Greek yogurt, cheese, green peppers, tomatoes, avocado, lettuce, and scallions…all with a southwestern flair? It really doesn’t get much better, in my book. Obviously, the sour cream was replaced with Greek yogurt. If you haven’t already noticed…this is one of my favorite swaps to make something more healthy. … you seriously can’t taste a difference!
Later…I will also share…the most amazing secret ingredient to this dish… that many of you probably already do. …
Let’s get started!
Get all your ingredients ready…go on pull ’em all out of wherever they are hiding. You’ll need:
refried beans, lime juice, salt, pepper, Greek yogurt, (extra sharp) cheddar cheese, green chiles, tomatoes, avocado, shredded lettuce, scallions, and (of course) tortilla chips.
Start by putting the beans in a small bowl and mixing with lime juice and 1 tablespoon of water. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer beans to a serving dish (we don’t have a serving dish) … so baking dish it is!
Then HERE’S THE COVETED SECRET: MIX ½ PACKET OF TACO SEASONING INTO THE GREEK YOGURT. It’s makes all the difference. It takes this dish from a six to a ten! Just do it!
Then layer the Greek yogurt mixture on top of the beans.
Isn’t it pretty….sure to wow your guests.
..and all the guys outside putting in our new window.
Obviously, this doesn’t last long in our house.
Have a fantastic Friday, everyone.
Here’s the recipe!
