It’s about that time! Time for football! Which usually means… fried chicken wings, pizza, beer, high calorie dips, etc… Just because it’s football season doesn’t mean you have to blow your diet! Or stop eating healthy for that matter. Here is one of my favorite party foods! My vegetarian tri-bean salad!
- 4-6 Roma tomatoes
- 1 green bell pepper, seeded
- 1 poblano pepper, seeded
- 1 banana pepper, seeded
- 1 jalapeno pepper
- 3/4 cup cilantro, chopped
- 2 cans of tri-bean mix (pintos, black beans, red kidney beans)
- 1 lime
- 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
Chop tomatoes, peppers, cilantro and onions. I left my jalapeno seeds in my jalapeno for an extra little kick.
Also this Vidalia Chop Wizard is one of my favorite kitchen gadgets! It chops so evenly and makes chopping go by so much quicker. I always use this when fresh produce needs to be diced!
I have an amazing contraption that chops for me so all pieces are the same size. Once you’ve done all of your chopping, place your mixture into a bowl and set aside.
Open both cans of beans and strain out the juice and rinse under water.
Once you’ve added your beans to the mix, stir with a spoon and squeeze plenty of lime juice over you salad.
And viola! You’re ready to be the health nut tailgating!
This is a low calorie, high protein, high fiber way to snack at a football party.
