6 + 6 Layer Dip Recipe:

Preheat oven 350 and grease Casserole Dish with Canola oil spray.  Layer the next 6 ingredients into the Casserole Dish, in order:

- Vegetarian Refried Organic Pinto Beans & Jalapeno Peppers
- 1 cup Corn (canned, drained, rinsed)
- Fire Roasted canned Tomatoes cook with Green Chiles
- 1 can Dark Red Kidney Beans or Black Beans (drained, rinsed)
- 1/4 cup Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese     
- 1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese

Cover and b
ake for 30 minutes.   Remove the cover and bake another 10 minutes.  Meanwhile prep the next 6 layer ingredients so they are ready to top the Dip when it is done cooking:

-Fresh Cilantro, chopped

-Fresh Lime, cut into wedges

-Scallions, chopped

-Red Onions, chopped

-Avocado, diced

-More Corn, still cool & crisp for the top   

Spray Corn Tortillas with Canola Oil and put into Broiler until lightly browned and crisp.  Remove and break into pieces once cool enough to handle.  

Remove Dip from Oven, let cool a few minutes.  Top with the additional 6 layers of fresh ingredients and serve with broken toasted Corn Tortillas. 

This meal/ recipe was a last minute inspiration I had when I started craving that traditional 7 layer dip around dinner time.  It was quick to throw together and all the fresh ingredients kept the flavor crisp and light.  A new fav to be sure - we devoured this!
