Low Calorie Dip Recipe – 1 Points +
Is it wrong that it’s not even Christmas yet and I’m already fantasizing about what delicious dishes I’m going to make for my Super Bowl party?!? I can’t help it — I’m a sucker for all those tasty Super Bowl Recipes. I mean really….who doesn’t love wings, nachos, chips, pizza…..oh I could go on and on. But, as a Weight Watcher, I like to host my own Super Bowl party so that I can control what gets put on the table! And all the yummy foods I make are SO good, no one even knows they are Weight Watchers Recipes!! This delicious guacamole alternative is no exception! Made from asparagus, instead of avocados, as the main ingredient, the calorie and fat count comes down considerably, making each 1/4 cup serving just 1 Points + Value! This super yummy dip can be used as a great low calorie vegetable dip, or it can be served with baked tortilla chips! It also makes a great spread on a wrap with some turkey and veggies! It’s truly a versatile, yet healthy dip that can be used oh so many ways. Enjoy!
