Ingredients
  

  • 15 ounces black beans 1 can
  • 8 ounces low fat cream cheese 1 block
  • 1 cups Greek yogurt plain
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 plum tomato diced
  • ½ small red onion diced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro snipped
  • ¼ cups sliced black olives

Instructions
 

  • Drain and rinse the black beans and pour them into a round or square 10-inch baking dish. Mash the beans with a fork.
  • Soften the cream cheese by placing it into the microwave for 30 seconds at a time. It typically takes me 30-60 seconds to soften the cream cheese.
  • Mix the cream cheese, Greek yogurt, taco seasoning, and garlic in a medium bowl. Spread this mixture over the top of the mashed beans in the baking dish.
  • Sprinkle the dip with the shredded cheese.
  • Microwave the dip for 5-7 minutes, until hot and bubbly and the cheese is melted. Alternatively, you could bake at 350º for 20 minutes.
  • Top the taco dip with diced tomatoes, sliced black olives, snipped fresh cilantro, and diced onion - whatever you like - or nothing at all. It's good with and without toppings.

Notes

You can use commercial taco seasoning for a very easy dish, but it is not gluten-free. If gluten is a problem for you, you can use this recipe for homemade taco seasoning. It's just as good as the commercial stuff!
