This is 7-layer black bean dip simplified: Heat and season refried beans and top with fresh veggies for a texturally interesting dip. Serve with Multi-Seed Crackers. 

How to Make It

Combine beans, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, salt, and garlic in a shallow bowl. Microwave on high until heated through, about 1 minute. Spread mixture into a 1-quart serving dish in an even layer and top with avocado, tomato, onion, cheese, pickled jalapeño, and cilantro. Serve immediately or cover and chill up to 3 hours.
