Mexican 5-Layered Spread

Typically this spread contains more than twice the calories and ten times the fat found in this version, yet the pleasure, taste, and texture remain the same. A great appetizer, snack for the kids, or accompaniment to a buffet. The Low-Fat, Chunky Guacamole is a welcome addition to this snack.

1/3 cup tomatoes, diced

4 tablespoons fresh cilantro, diced
