Backus Diabetes Management Center Dietitian Wendy Kane kicks off a series of healthy recipes to make sure you score a touchdown with your Super Bowl party.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (16-ounce) can fat-free refried beans
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 cup bottled salsa
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) preshredded reduced-fat Mexican blend or cheddar cheese
  • Chopped cilantro (optional)
  • Preparation
  • Preheat oven to 375°.

Combine beans; spread in an 8-inch square baking dish. Spread sour cream over beans; top with salsa and cheese. Cover; bake at 375° for 20 minutes. Uncover; bake 10 minutes or until bubbly. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.

Note: To make pita chips, cut 5 (6-inch) onion-flavored or regular pitas into 8 wedges each. Arrange on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Lightly coat tops of wedges with cooking spray, sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bake at 375º for 8 minutes or until lightly browned.
