Skinny Super Bowl Snack – Black Bean Salsa

I am super excited about the Super Bowl! My boyfriend, Peyton Manning, is the quarterback for the Denver Broncos – otherwise known as “The Winning Team”. Now, mind you, Peyton has no idea who this crazy lady in Atlanta is…but he’s still my boyfriend :)

Usually Super Bowl party get togethers are chock full of high fat, high sodium food and snacks. This black bean salsa is an excellent alternative to these foods.
