Seven Layer Fresh Fiesta Dip - Healthy Option

“This is a low fat version that I have been experimenting with the last few months. It is quite d'lish and we prefer it above the full fat versions. I like to serve it in smaller portion control bowls and give each person their own; that has been a real hit! People really seem to love the fact they have their own little dip for double dipping!”
