For a slight variation on “Cowboy Caviar” this great dip uses a combination of fresh, frozen, and canned goods. Aim to seek out organic beans – believe it not, they are lower sodium content then the conventional “low sodium” varieties. This dip is high in fiber, Vitamin C, and potassium – all powerhouses for boosting the immune system. Use this tasty dip as a topper to jazz up grilled chicken breast, as a filling for vegetarian enchiladas, or cooked into an egg scramble. Enjoy!
