This Chili Refried Bean Cheese Dip makes a hearty and healthy after-school snack, and is also great for Game Day.
My son eats lunch at 10:00AM at school (which is crazy!), so by the time he walks in the door after school, he is famished. Now that school has settled in, we’ve gotten into a routine of feeding him a hearty snack as soon as he gets home, and dinner later in the evening after homework and sports activities. I try to make sure he eats something that has a good amount of protein which also satisfies his snack attack. My son loves dips and nachos, which is fortunate because I can usually dig up some leftovers in our refrigerator and transform them into some sort of hearty dip. I know if I melt a little cheese on top of almost anything, he’ll eat it.
