Party Bean Dip
Nice, lighter option for a dip. It was a big hit at our beach-side Happy Hour!
6 (8-inch) flour tortillas
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 (16 ounce) can fat-free refried beans
1 cup chunky salsa
2/3 cup fresh corn kernels (cut off the cob) - or canned
1/4 cup chopped green onions
2 Tablespoons chopped black olives
3/4 cup (3 ounces) pre-shredded 4-cheese Mexican blend cheese (not lowfat)
3/4 cup (6 ounces) light sour cream
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges, and arrange wedges in single layers on 2 baking sheets. Lightly spray wedges with cooking spray; sprinkle with paprika. Bake at 350°F. for 15 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp. Cool.
3. Combine juice, cumin and beans in a medium bowl, stirring until well combined. Spread mixture evenly into an 11x7-inch baking dish (or a deep dish pie plate) coated with cooking spray. Spread salsa evenly over beans. Combine corn, onions, and olives; spoon corn mixture evenly over salsa. Sprinkle cheese over corn mixture.
4. Bake for 20 minutes, or until bubbly. Let stand for 10 minutes. Top with sour cream; sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with tortilla chips.

*It's important to use regular cheese (not low fat) for this recipe. The low fat stuff doesn't melt well.
