Tex-Mex Taco Dip

Ingredients
1 1/2
pounds ground raw turkey breast
1
jalapeno chile pepper, seeded and finely chopped (optional)
1
8 ounce envelope reduced sodium taco seasoning mix
2
8 ounce package reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), softened
2
16 ounce can fat-free refried beans
3
avocados, halved, seeded, peeled and mashed
2
tablespoons lemon juice
1/2
cup fat-free dairy sour cream
1/2
cup fat-free mayonnaise
8
ounces reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese
1/2
cup chopped green onions (optional)
2
cups shredded fresh spinach
3
medium tomatoes, chopped
 
Assorted vegetable dippers and/or baked tortilla chips

Directions

  1. In a large skillet cook ground turkey and jalapeno, if using, with half of the taco seasoning mix (about 2 tablespoons) until turkey is no longer pink; remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, spread cream cheese into the bottom of a 13x9x2-inch baking dish. Spread cream cheese layer with refried beans. Stir the lemon juice into the mashed avocado and spread over refried bean layer. In a small bowl stir together sour cream, mayonnaise and remaining taco seasoning mix. Spread this sour cream mixture atop the avocado layer. Top with ground turkey mixture and then sprinkle top with cheese.
  3. Bake, uncovered, in a 325 degrees F oven about 25 minutes or until heated through and cheese is evenly melted. Top with green onions if desired, shredded spinach and chopped tomato. Serve with vegetable dippers and/or baked tortilla chips.
