Game day is around the corner, and what’s a football viewing party without a tantalizing 7-layer dip to join the lineup? (Oh, and a lighter alternative for buffalo wings!) Traditional variations, while delicious, often pack a hefty caloric punch that can sidetrack health-conscious fans from their dietary goals. That’s why we’ve huddled up to create a lighter version of this fan-favorite — a skinny 7-layer Dip that scores big on taste without excessive calories and saturated fat.

Some of the healthier-for-you ingredients include:

  • Black beans instead of refried beans: By substituting black beans for refried beans, you can decrease the saturated fat content of your snack, which is beneficial for heart health.
  • Silken tofu: Including silken tofu in your dish can enhance the nutritional benefits in terms of both macro and micro nutrients. Silken tofu is a great source of protein, iron, and calcium. It can be a valuable addition to a vegetarian or vegan diet, providing essential amino acids and promoting bone health.
  • Unsweetened coconut milk: Opting for unsweetened coconut milk can contribute to the overall nutritional value of your recipe. It may offer some micronutrients like iron and magnesium. But coconut milk is higher in calories and saturated fat compared to other plant-based milk alternatives, so portion control is recommended.

Remember, the beauty of a 7-layer dip is in its versatility. Feel free to substitute any of these ingredients to suit your dietary needs or taste preferences. And dont’ forget to log it in MyFitnessPal!
