Spicy, smokey and with just the right amount of citrus, this dip is low carb, low calorie and packed with protein. Perfect for guiltless snacking, in any location, but preferably poolside.. with margarita in hand!
Making salsas and dips are such an easy way to appease a crowd! I shows- “hey I care and I want to put a little effort into this, but not tooooo much effort” Is that cool?
And that was exactly my mood on this particular day. I wanted to bring a nibble to share while lounging by one of my girlfriend’s pool. It was a hot and humid summer day, so surely ice cold margaritas would be looming on our afternoon’s horizon! I know we’ve both been running around endlessly entertaining our broods of children all summer so we definitely deserved the lazy lounging time!
Since chips and dip are ever-present when the blessed Margarita is involved I quickly whipped up this appetizer that was spicy, smokey with just the right amount of citrus. The chipotle white bean dip was the absolute perfect snack in the sun! Paired with some ICE COLD watermelon slices, a couple pool floats and we were full swing Summer Mode!
