Baby Lima Bean Layer Dip

TRLD2-36
This is my second version of Lima bean dip. This time I added taco seasoned cooked ground beef in a layer on the bottom  to encourage  dipping all the way to the bottom.

TRLD2-1
I used one package of frozen baby lima beans cooked in a little water.

TRLD2-5
I let them cool a little.

TRLD2-8
Next I Blended beans with 2 cups of water, lemon juice and a pinch of salt.

TRLD2--4
Added more water so the blender would keep going. It was kind of bogging down with all those beans.

TRLD2-16
Then I got every thing out. Really more cheese is preferable. This is just all that there was in the fridge.

TRLD2-17
As planned I started with a layer of ground beef.

TRLD2-19
Then cheese. If you have enough cheese, don’t be cheap like I was.

TRLD2-21
Next layer on the lima bean puree, parsley,

TRLD2-23
Greek yogurt,

TRLD2-25
and tomatoes.

TRLD2-26
Top with more cheese and

TRLD2-27
a sprinkle more of parsley.

TRLD2-38-2
That’s all.
Serve immediately or make ahead.
