Layered Mexican Bean Dip

So, we call this 7-Layer Dip at our house, and I was surprised to find how low-cal and good for you this is! Two points for a serving!? Woo-hoo! Here's a Weight Watchers version. Combine it with some baked chips and get your snack on, just in time for the Superbowl! Enjoy.

Layered Mexican Bean Dip
16 oz fat-free canned refried beans
3 medium avocado, Hass, finely mashed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 cup(s) fat-free sour cream
2 tablespoons fajita seasoning mix
1/2 cup(s) Weight Watchers Reduced Fat Shredded Mexican-Style Cheese
1 small tomato(es), chopped
2 medium scallion(s) (aka green onions), sliced
10 medium olive(s), black, sliced or chopped
2 tablespoons 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 or chill until ready to use. Yields about 1/4 cup of dip per serving. Makes 16 servings.
This dip is also great topped with diced bell peppers and shredded lettuce. Add jalapeno slices for extra heat. Only 2 points per serving.
