Healthy Black Bean Dip!

March is my favorite time of year, mostly because of the NCAA tournament.

So, with all the game-watching and St. Patrick's Day festivities, it's really easy for calories to get away from you. 

I came up with this dip because I wanted something easy that I wouldn't feel guilty about eating.  It's delicious, creamy and best of all--has ZERO fat, tons of fiber and even protein! 

Serve with veggies or whole wheat pitas

How To:

1.) Rinse and drain 1 can of black beans
2.) Peel 1-2 cloves of garlic and chop each in a few large pieces
3.) Put garlic and beans in food processor--salt and pepper to taste
4.) Process to desired consistency
5.) SERVE!

**Optional:  If you want to add extra vitamins and fiber, feel free to add a couple of handfuls of fresh spinach.  It will make more dip and change the color to be more green--but still delicious!
