Verdict

On game day, nothing beats a good bean dip, this one proved that. It was very flavorful, but not very appealing to the eye. I added a dollop of non-fat sour cream, sliced green onions and sprinkled about a tablespoon of shredded cheese on top to make it prettier. It didn’t add many more calories, but who’s really counting when you’re digging in the dip?
