Southwestern Spinach-Black Bean Dip

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Melissa Spangler

I was craving Southwestern Egg rolls from Chili's and since I've been cutting back on the carbs, I came up with this recipe that can be used as a dip with tortilla chips, quesadilla filling or as a side dish.

Yum. I used low fat ingredients and this was good. We used baked tortilla chips and enjoyed this as an appetizer. I reheated the leftovers and enjoyed them for lunch.
