Seven-layer dip was a regular feature of watching Saturday college football games with my dad when I was a kid.
Dad doesn’t like sour cream, so our version had a layer of diced onion and black olives instead of peppers. It also had a LOT more cheese on top.
This healthier version is heavy on fresh vegetables and uses nonfat refried beans and low-fat yogurt instead of sour cream.
As a lifelong connoisseur of seven-layer dip, I can attest to its tastiness!
