Slow Cooker Southwest Black Bean Dip With Homemade Chips

Slow Cooker Southwest Black Bean Dip With Homemade Chips

This time of year we love to get together and spend more time outside at parties and BBQ’s with friends and family. If we’re heading out, of course it’s customary to bring a dish and so I always do (and often bring several). This way I know that I’ll have something healthy to eat and can also share with my loved ones how delicious healthy eating can be. This fun recipe for Slow Cooker Southwest Bean Dip is going to be put to big use this year for sure!

As crazy as it has been around here with a new baby, I’m always looking for ways to keep my food simple and even when I’m busy I don’t want to go down the road of buying processed foods full of health-wrecking additives. When I recently checked out the ingredients on bean dips at the store, my mind was reeling. Way back in the day, I used to love Fritos Bean Dip and actually thought it was good for me because it’s low fat and had fiber. Boy was I wrong!
