Carrot Chips and Black Bean Dip

We love salty chips, especially tortilla chips. Yum! Like me, I bet you’ll be digging in tomorrow for Superbowl Sunday. Why not add this to our parties as a healthy option so when we feel like munching we’ll be filling up on all the good stuff. This dish is filled with fiber and protein to help keep us full and away from the fried foods. The chips didn’t get as crispy as I anticipated but I stacked them on a plate with a dollop of dip and ate them with a fork. Just as good!
