My boyfriend and I are headed down to Florida this weekend (Universal and Daytona 500, here we come!), so we need to make sure we use up everything we have in our fridge. This means lots of meals where we just throw things together. We have already done pasta, stirfry, salad...and frankly we wanted something new. I started to realize lots of what we had went together quite well - avocado, greek yogurt, black beans, ground meat, cheese, tortilla chips - so I set out to buy a lime and some cilantro to tie it all together!
I know that a dip doesn't really sound like a dinner, but this is so filling. In my mind, dinners are paired together for contrasting textures and complimentary flavors. This 6-layer dip served with tortilla chips does just that!
You're probably thinking, "wait - isn't it usually 7-layer dip?" and you're not wrong to think so. But who says it has to be?! Really it was a matter of not having any salsa or wanting to buy any that made it 6 instead of 7 layers, but believe me when I tell you that you won't miss it. There are so many flavors happening already in this version of the well known dip!
