Seven Layered Bean Dip

M for Mexico. I have heard such raving reviews about this bean dip but never had the opportunity to taste or make. The scene changed when we had a taste of this dip at my friend's place. We were totally sold on this.

This is such a versatile dip that we can add any vegetables as per our preference and enjoy it. I have since been making this at least once or twice a week.

I found that this is a very good way to ensure the kids get their share of salad and beans :). 

Seven Layered Bean Dip

Recipe Source Amsa
Ingredients - 

Red Kidney Beans(Rajma) 1 cup (Canned beans work well too)
Avocados, coarsely mashed 1 1/2 cups
Sour Cream 6 oz
Cheese, shredded upto 3/4 cup
Lettuce, chopped, upto 3/4 cup
Tomato + Red Bell Pepper, chopped 1/2 cup
Olives/Corn (Optional) 1/2 cup each
Spring Onion, chopped 1/2 cup

Seven Layered Bean Dip

Method Of Preparation -

I used Red Kidney Beans, soaked overnight and pressure cooked until soft. I also seasoned the cooked beans with Taco seasoning. Let it cool.

While the bean mixture is cooling, make the avocado paste. I seasoned it with garlic and salt (seasoning is totally optional).

In a glass bowl, spread the bean mixture evenly to make the bottom most layer.

Then spread the mashed avocado , sour cream, cheese, lettuce, tomato + Red bell pepper, Olive/corn and lastly spring onion in that order.

Cling wrap the glass bowl and refrigerate.It is recommended that it be refrigerated atleast for 6-8 hrs. But we used it up in 2 hrs and it was just fine.

Serve it with tortilla chips. I tried it as a filling in a hard shell taco, roti and it tasted just as delightful. My husband who wanted to spice it up a little added Sriracha hot sauce and enjoyed it as a salad! So the options are numerous.
