Bean Dip!

This is a hit with my boys and their friends too.  Get more veggies into your diet with this awesome snack or side dish.  This is an easy and yummy dinner on a bed of lettuce as a salad, or as a side dish with chicken tacos! Remember portion size is key to a healthy diet, if you eat this with chips, portion out a single serving of chips and put the bag away so you don’t over indulge.  Can you have too much of a good thing?  Yes, the answer is yes.  Enjoy!
