Do you like snacking?
Usually I am not a snacker, but now that I am nursing my newborn baby who has me up all night most nights, I am starving all the time!
All this snacking could definitely get out of hand and I am trying my best to eat a bit healthier and hopefully get some baby weight off.
Since I’m sleep deprived pretty much all the time it helps eating healthier because I feel more energized eating healthy foods.
One of my biggest weaknesses on the weekends is chips and dips.
Oh, I could totally go for a 7-layer bean dip right now!
Last weekend I made my own spin on the 7-layer bean dip, so I could have something healthier and creamy to dip my chips in.
Check out my recipe for creamy red bean salsa below!
Lighter Creamy Red Bean Salsa
If you’re like me and crave chips and dips on the weekend then this salsa is a good healthier option.
I swear it reminds me of a 7 layer bean dip, only more flavorful. You can have that creamy taste and the red beans are a perfect replacement for re fried beans.
For a salsa it’s really on the mild side, which is good for me because I don’t do spicy well. (Heartburn!)
With the addition of corn, cilantro, and other fresh ingredients it’s just so yummy!
Aside from snacking, this would be great to serve at a party or family get-together.
I used S&W Kidney Beans in my recipe because their beans are so fresh out of the can. Aside from their core set of beans they have lots of varieties to choose from for your dietary needs, like low sodium and organic. Did you know they have been making their premium beans for over 120 years using the highest standards in the industry?
They make such a wide variety of beans from chili to kidney! Stocking up is a must for us since beans are so versatile and can be used in so many recipes. Love this easy way to add protein into recipes.
I’m really picky when it comes to ingredients and really think that the S&W beans stand out above the rest when it comes to flavor and freshness. The vibrant color of these beans really makes them look great in recipes. Just look how the kidney beans shine through in this salsa. So pretty!
