Easy Caribbean Layered Dip

This is my go-to appetizer recipe.

I brought it to a cookout on Friday night and then made a fresh batch for a gathering on Saturday. On both nights, virtually none was left.

It’s quick and easy to make, is relatively low-fat and it even looks pretty on the plate.

The next time you are asked to bring a dish to pass, tell the hostess you’ll bring an appetizer;)

Easy Caribbean Layered Dip

  • 1 (8 oz) block of Neufchâtel cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 C sour cream
  • 1 T taco seasoning mix (from a 1.25 oz envelope)
  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and well-rinsed
  • 1/2 C chopped red bell peppers
  • 1/2 C chopped mango (I substituted a can of drained mandarin oranges)
  • 2 T chopped fresh cilantro (I like cilantro, so I used more like 1/3 cup!)
  • 1-2 tsp finely chopped jalapeno chiles (optional)
  • tortilla chips

In a small bowl, mix cream cheese, sour cream and taco seasoning until smooth. Spread mixture on a round serving plate. Top with black beans, bell pepper, mango or oranges, cilantro and jalapeno chilies (if using). Serve with tortilla chips. Makes 24 servings. Serving size = 2 T dip and 3 chips

  1. Looks yummy!

  2. I made this for a party and I tripled the recipe and used the mangos. Everyone like it and it was easy to make and transport.
