"Buggy" Nacho Dip

Share

I wouldn't exactly call nacho cheese dip "healthy," but considering all of the junk kids traditionally consume on Halloween, this dip will definitely give them a good protein boost to start their evening of Trick or Treating and hopefully fill their bellies with something more nutritious than candy bars.

I don't know about your kids, but if my kids see chips and something with cheese along side it, they're totally in! With a few black beans "bugs" thrown in for fun and giggles, it's a Halloween recipe for success!
