Looking for a quick and healthy snack that doesn’t taste quick or healthy? With just a few simple ingredients, you can whip up a restaurant-quality appetizer that you can eat without any guilt. Black beans, one of the world’s healthiest foods, are packed with heart-healthy fiber and cancer-fighting antioxidants.

That’s right, filled with complex carbohydrates and protein, this is a snack that won’t let you down after an hour or two!
This is one of those recipes that I just threw together from ingredients I had on hand. This means, you can do the same.
