Trader Joes 5-Layer Fiesta Dip

3 years ago

First of all I want to point out that the presentation of this dish is not as it looks when purchased in store. I accidentally dropped it out of the fridge and it got all shook up and rather ugly looking. When you purchase it at the store its layered nicely and the cheese is presented at the very center of the bowl. I picked up this small size (it also comes in a large size for parties) 5-Layer Fiesta Dip from Trader Joes on my last haul because I was hoping to have something that would be a nice, different treat for myself. Ive had homemade 5 (or 7-) layer dips and they are absolutely delicious. Dips can be made at home and without a doubt can be made as healthy as possible. When I flipped over the packaging in store, I was surprised by the nutritional information. There were only 50 calories in a 2 tablespoon serving, which is the least calories Ive seen on any store-brand 5-layer dip. Typically the calories run round 100+ so I immediately had to figure out what the Weight Watchers Points Plus were. A 2 tablespoon serving was 1 points plus, while a 4 tablespoon serving is only 3 pointsplus. Not bad at all for something of convenience. The dip itself is made from layered black bean dip, salsa, sour cream, cheddar cheese and guacamole. Taste wise its not bad but its certainly not the best 5-layer dip Ive ever had. I think it was the salsa that kind of made it weird for me I like a medium or mild salsa and it was kind of on the blander even slightly sweeter side. I cant say I would run out and repurchase this again but if I was in a bind and REALLY wanted 5-layer dip without the hassle of making it myself, perhaps Id repurchase but unless that arose, I probably wouldnt buy this again. Since my boyfriend isnt a huge fan of things like this I ended up serving it to a guest or two, but the rest ended up in the garbage. Sorry to say. QUESTION: Have you tried the 5-Layer Fiesta Dip at Trader Joes? Image is mine do not take or use. Thank you.
