Skinny Seven Layer Dip

The traditional 7 layer dip can be rather fattening, so here is a fresher, lighter alternative. It requires a tad more work, but I assure you it is worth it! I always have people asking for this recipe.

Original recipe makes 40 servings


1 (8 ounce) container fat-free sour cream
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 fresh jalapeno pepper, finely diced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 (1 ounce) packet taco seasoning
5 dashes hot pepper sauce
1 lemon, juiced
2 avocados – peeled, pitted, and mashed
3 cups shredded lettuce
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 (11 ounce) cans Mexican-style corn, drained
1 cup chunky salsa
1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
1 (2.25 ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1 Roma (plum) tomato, chopped
