5-Layer Mexican Dip

Here’s a yummy dip recipe that’s great for summer snacking as well as game-watching all year round! I love recipes like this that are so easy to make, and because this 5-Layer Mexican Dip has refried black beans, olives, green onions, and chopped tomato in it, it’s a little healthy, right? 🙂 You could make it even healthier by using light sour cream instead of regular sour cream. Or, if you like plain Greek yogurt, you could even substitute that for the sour cream. And if you use low-fat shredded cheddar cheese, you have a lower-calorie dip that’s still really tasty!

The pretzels are great on their own, but if you love dips (which I do), they’re really good with this veggie dip! You can also serve the dip with fresh veggies or potato chips, so it’s pretty versatile!
