|Green Chili Bean Dip with Chips ~ You'd never know the dip was Fat Free!|
I am still thinking about appetizers / hors d'oeuvres for an Oscar Party. How about some dip? I think something creamy & a little spicy would be a good choice. If you were to make it fat free & low calorie ~ I think you would definitely have a winner. Since Los Angeles is home to some really great Mexican food, I decided on something with a bit of Mexican flair. So, here is my recipe for ~ Green Chili Bean Dip. It is so easy to make & only takes minutes to put together. It tastes like it is full of calories - it has such a rich flavor. But, nope ~ no fat in this baby!
Depending on how low cal you want it, serve it with ~ baked chips, veggies or regular chips.
makes approx 1 cup
half of a 16oz. can fat free refried beans
6 tbsp chopped fire roasted green chiles - (like Ortega brand)
get the 4oz. can
1 tbsp water
2 tsp taco seasoning mix
Blend all ingredients with a fork, in medium bowl, until smooth. Let sit in fridge for an hour, or overnight, so flavors can meld.
It can be eaten either - hot or at room temperature. Serve with baked chips, veggies or regular chips.
If you'd like another Mexican low calorie treat, try these Baked Jalapeno Poppers. I wrote about these last month & served them for Super Bowl. Another appetizer that is full of flavor but low on calories. Enjoy!
