Great idea; but low, non, and reduced fat products have added modified food "starch" in them which raises the carb level compared to full fat products. I've come to learn that you generally can't have it both ways; low fat and low carb. I use black soy beans which have more fiber than any other bean and therefore, less net carbs. I process them in my food processor for a refried version. I also use Trader Joe's Flaxseed Tortilla chips (8 carbs per serving) to enjoy this dip with. Otherwise this is legal for low carb.

Wonderful, except I use full fat ingredients as they are lower in carbs.
