Healthy and addicting black bean dip – the perfect snack full of protein to keep you satisfied! Serve it up alongside pita chips, tortilla chips or veggies.
Guess what tomorrow is?! If you’re like me, you’re thinking “um, Sunday?”. But if you’re like my husband, you’re thinking “Super Bowl Sunday!!!”. Ha!
What are you doing for the big game? Do you have all your snacks and meals planned? I’m actually going to a friend’s house to watch the game. They have a giant, beautiful home with a nice big TV. 🙂 My kids are going to be in heaven!
I’m supposed to bring some yummy snacks with me. If you know anything about me, you know I’m a snacker. I would much rather have crackers and cheese than a meal. I especially LOVE dips. I have lots of dip recipes on here that range from healthy to dessert. Like Skinny Pumpkin Dip, Pizza Dip, Cheesy Corn Dip and S’mores Dip. I like to sort of nibble and peck at things in the pantry and fridge. Are you like that too?
If you are, I have the perfect recipe for you today… Black Bean Dip! It tastes just like a (refried) bean dip but is much healthier. It has a yummy bean flavor with just a kick of spice.
Black beans are loaded with protein, making this the perfect snack if you’re watching your calories. Just a little bit goes a long way. It pairs fabulously with pita chips or veggies. My family just couldn’t get enough of it! It’s a bit addicting, so watch out for that. 😉
This is a great appetizer to serve up while you’re watching the game this weekend. I know I’ll be making it again, too! Enjoy!
