day 1, used it as a dip for Mary's crackers
day 2, spread all on a warm whole tortilla and topped with shredded lettuce
I keep this dip very simple; work hard to eliminate all of the "bad" fats that the typical party-served layered spread usually has. There are many variations BUT keep it healthy.
1 can vegetarian refried beans
1 small can diced mild green chilies, drained
1/2 lime, juiced
1 clove garlic, grated
1 jar salsa, chunky
On a plate, spread a layer of the refried beans, using all.
Spoon on a layer of the green chilies.
In a small bowl, mash together the avocado, salt, garlic and lime juice.
Spread this avocado mixture on top of the chilies layer.
Top all with a generous layer of salsa, making sure to cover all of the avocado.
Vegan cheddar cheese would be a great additional layer.
