Low Fat Taco Bean Dip

If you are anything like me I hear the words Low Fat I think not going to be good.
But I took a risk on this recipe and I was pleasantly surprised this Taco Bean Dip was great!
Don't get me wrong I love the loaded up Taco Dip.

This is a nice light taco dip good for a hot summer party.

What you will need:
1 16oz can re-fried beans
1 Cup Low Fat Greek yogurt
1 Cup Fat Free cottage cheese
1 Ripe Avocado
4 Teaspoons cumin
Dash of salt
1/4 Teaspoon black pepper
1/2 Teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/2 Cup of your favorite shredded cheese, I used a Mexican blend
1 2.5oz sliced blacked olives
2 Green onions thinly sliced

How to make this:
In your food processor add the cottage cheese, yogurt, avocado, Tabasco, salt,  pepper and half of the cumin powder blend well.  It makes a beautiful shade of green!
In a pie dish spread your re-fried beans sprinkle with the remaining cumin.
Now layer your avocado mixture.
Sprinkle with cheese, olives and finally green olives.
It's ready to devour!
Serve with tortilla chips.

Fulton Farmers Market

Alrighty, I am back!  Well at lease I hope I can be on more of a regular basis!
Life just gets so busy!  I just moved my eldest child, planted my monstrous garden and now my youngest is on summer vacation.

About a month ago or more I visited a new (new to me) farmers market, the Fulton Farmers Market in Edina, MN.
Now it was pretty early in the season for a farmers market visit but what the heck, I had family in town and wanted to entertain them.
I will return to this market later in the summer to check out their goodies.
They were set up in a large church parking lot.
They had a couple of food trucks, fantastic canned goods, delicious cheese booth, fresh herbs and so much more!
It is so hard to decide what farmers markets to visit in my area!

Soon I will post a recipe I swear!
