Homestyle Refried Bean Dip


This homestyle refried bean dip recipe is loaded with fiber at 5g per serving, and is also a great source of vegetarian protein. The benefits of dietary fiber include keeping the gastrointestinal system as well as your microbiome healthy, in addition to reducing risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. 

The low sodium content also makes this recipe an excellent choice. Dried herbs and garlic add to the flavor profile while providing an excellent array of phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are chemicals that are derived from plants that provide antioxidant and immune-boosting benefits. 

This bean dip would be a great addition to your taco night, or simply used as a destination for sliced vegetables or whole-grain tortilla chips.
