Who is ready for some football? This amazing 4-ingredient, low-carb dip stars our amazing red bean and will be a hit at your next tailgating celebration!
Red beans and rice, a Louisiana staple traditionally served on Mondays, offers a wonderful source of fiber and protein to our diet. I love this dish and tradition so much, I proudly wear a red bean charm as a necklace (thank you Mignon Faget!)
This dip embraces our Skinny Louisiana motto by celebrating our Monday culinary tradition, bringing over to a football celebration (hello SEC!) and cutting down the total fat by using light cream cheese and reduced-fat shredded cheese. Complicated? Not at all, a simple food processor is all you need to dazzle the crowd.
1 can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
