I made a dip recipe last night that included items that I can eat since I have so many food issues. I am gluten, salicylate and night shade intolerant . . . big time. On top of that I have diverticulitis, so no nuts or seeds of any type are allowed. That makes the eating challenging but it can be worked out with a little creativity. So, last night I made a dip that turned out to be quite tasty. It is like that 7 layer dip that starts with refried beans and sour cream, etc.
The bottom layer in a glass baking dish was Sour Cream and Chive Cream Cheese. Next I drained and smashed a can of black beans and added part of a packet of mild taco seasoning . . . add this to your taste. You could use the hot or something else if you like, but we prefer mild. It is probably due to our older age and perhaps damaged stomachs. Haha. It could also possibly be good to put some diced onions, jalapeno, green peppers or something else in with the beans. Use your imagination and use whatever you think would be good. So, the beans are the second layer. The third layer was sour cream and the fourth layer was sliced black olives. Over the black olives I drizzled Old El Paso Mild Taco Sauce. I use the sauce because I cannot have seeds. The next layer was shredded cheddar. We were going to eat this cold but then I decided that all of those ingredients would be good if you heated them too. I baked them until the ingredients were warm and the cheese melted. Then I added sliced green onion tops when I took it out of the oven. For everyone that can eat freely, it would probably be good to add to this after you took it out of the oven, some chopped lettuce and some salsa.
We used Nacho Cheese Doritos to dip the concoction with and that just gave it even more of a great flavor! You could use nacho chips, frito scoops or whatever you like. We loved this so much! It turned out to be quite tasty! I am even thinking of other concoctions already! This would be good to use as some sort of a pizza type dip if you changed it up and used mozarella (although cheddar would still be good), ricotta on the bottom layer, flavor the beans with italian seasoning, etc. Let your imaginations go!
I know that I gave you other ingredients that you could possibly use, but trust me, it was great just the way it was prepared! In fact, Wessie ate the leftovers this morning with just a fork, he did not heat it and still loved it!
