Hearty White Bean Salsa

IMG_5183

If chips and salsa are in the room. Game over. It’s hard to know when to stop – or rather, hard simply to stop (we all technically know when it’s time) – when you’re dealing with a light salsa and empty carbs and addictive saltiness from the corn chips. This recipe uses white beans to give salsa a heartier edge, making each bite definitive and worth it, so you’ll know when to stop because you’ll actually be getting full from the protein!

White Beans: are one of the most concentrated food sources of the detoxifying enzymemolybdenum, are low on the glycemic index, keep cravings at bay, lower the risk of heart disease and adult-onset diabetes, slow the absorption of carbohydrates (and thus body fat), prevent premature aging with their high-antioxidant content, and are very high in magnesium and thus helpful for handling stress and preventing celiac disease and gastrointestinal problems.

    This salsa looks great–especially for those days when you really just want chips for lunch. :) Now you can! Haha.
