Black Bean Dip

With football season upon us, what better recipe to do this week than one that is great for tailgating.  More importantly, it will be a hit with all of your friends and family!

If you’re like me, you love to find new recipes that work and don’t take too much of your time.  I found this Weight Watchers recipe about 2 years ago and it is my go-to for tailgating, simple get togethers, or even for our home on the weekends.

Oh and I almost forgot…this recipe is healthy!  We all know that when we go to tailgate or to a party, there are rarely healthy options to go for, but here is one that is quick and easy.

FageI love to use Fage as a substitute for sour cream.

All TogetherI tend to add a little more cilantro than what is called for.

Food ProcessorThis part only takes about a minute or so.

When all is said and done, you can serve the dip with vegetables, tortilla chips, pita chips, etc.  This really is one of the fastest and simplest recipes I have ever made and it is simply delicious!
