Healthy Party Food Recipes

We are right in the middle of summer, or as I like to call it – party season!  I made these dips for a BBQ I attended recently and due to popular demand, am sharing my very top-secret “dip” recipes with all of you!  And yes – everything below is HEALTHY.

For healthy chips to go with your dip, try Lundberg Rice Chips (Sea Salt), Boulder Canyon Natural Foods Rice & Adzuki Bean Snack Chip (Natural Salt), Food Should Taste Tortilla Good Chips (Sweet Potato).  You can find these brands at Whole Foods, Wegmans, and Amazon.  When shopping, look on the bag for these key words – “Organic”; “All Natural”; “Gluten Free”; “Wheat Free”.  Remember, that with the least amount of ingredients is always healthiest!

To give you a colorful display, I have listed the recipes for onion dip (white), black bean dip (black), and avocado dip (green).  Compliment with colored chips and voila!  Hip & Healthy!
