The hot days are rolling in and we are loving it! Our pools are open, the beaches are waiting for day trippers with a day off, and the sunglasses are out. When you’re out in the sunshine all day, you can get really hungry! Instead of heading inside for a snack, bring these delicious treats out to the beach or poolside with you so you don’t have to miss even a few moments of sunshine.
Throw together this filling dip that goes perfectly with some nacho chips. Filled with beans and veggies, this dip can be a lunchtime meal/snack. Perfect for those sunny days!
