Green Chili Bean Dip ~ Fat Free & Fabulous

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!
