In the Kitchen: Taco Dip

Super Bowl Dip
(pun intentional, get it?)

Err, it's also called Taco Dip and this recipe makes an 8x8 dish, definitely double it if you take it to a party.

4 ounces softened cream cheese
4 ounces nonfat plain Greek yogurt (you can also use low fat sour cream)
2-3 good shakes hot sauce of your choice
1 tablespoon taco seasoning 
8 ounce or about half a jar salsa (I used Tostitos Cantina)
1 can black beans, rinsed and well drained (get that moisture off those beans)
1 chopped Roma tomato
1 1/2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
1 small can sliced black olives
1 jalapeno seeded and chopped
1 cup shredded cheese of your choice (I used Colby and Monterey Jack)

Mix cream cheese, hot sauce, taco seasoning and Greek yogurt in a bowl. Spread this mixture in an 8x8 dish.  Layer with salsa and follow it with black beans.  The next layer should be lettuce followed by tomatoes and then cheese.  Finally top with black olives and jalapenos.  But the sky is the limit here you can add chopped bell peppers, green onion, a squeeze of lime or whatever tasty taco toppings that you like.

We like to scoop ours with Tostitos Blue Corn chips.  Serve this alongside some hot wings for a fantastic Super Bowl Supper.
