It was a bit of a challenge trying to choose a name for this recipe but after much debate, we finally decided on Skinny Refried Bean Dip. The name definitely fits the bill but it is soo much more than just that!
For starters, it is super simple to whip up. 5 minutes is all it takes. Honestly. If this can be made in less time than most normal human beings spend in the shower, it cannot possibly be that difficult.
Then we started thinking about how healthy this recipe is. It is definitely a lightened up, clean eating version of refried beans. So the word skinny is an absolute truth. But the whole refried thing is kind of a scam. We would apologize except for the fact that it is completely good-for-you to skip to whole refried thing.
Finally came along the whole bean dip part. This bowl of deliciousness is definitely dip-able. But the really cool thing is that it also goes perfectly in tacos, on nachos, in quesadillas, and is flat out delicious by the spoonful. Not that we would know or anything. Ok fine. We may or may not have tried a few spoonfuls. For experimental purposes of course.
The whole point is that for once in your life you can really have it all with this quick and delicious Skinny Refried Bean Dip.
