Bell Pepper Scoop Chips

I know that on my Facebook page I  have mentioned that We LOVE The Chicago White Sox in our house.  Sometimes on game night ( game night is almost every night during the summer).  We will make a ” snacky” dinner and just eat it as we watch the baseball game.

My son is 8 months old, so we can get away with not eating around the table some nights.   I have a feeling next year will be different.

The other night for dinner I made a few ” skinny dips”   I wanted our ” snacky” dinner to still be healthy, so I created Bell Pepper Scoop chips!

It was a great way to scoop up all of our yummy dip without all those calories ( or carbs)

The best part about this dinner is that it took barely any time to make it!

Here are two recipes I used for Healthier dips.

Skinny Salsa Dip 
Ingredients 
* 2 Chicken breasts
* 1 Jar of Salsa
* 1 handful of non fat shredded cheese. ( almost any cheese will work) 

Directions
1) Cut the chicken into small pieces
2) Saute chicken in a saucepan
3) Once the chicken is cooked.  Add a jar of salsa and simmer for 5-10 minutes. 
4) When your chicken and salsa are nicely mixed, take off the heat
5) Add the cheese and stir. 

Pea and avocado Hummus
Ingredients
* 1 can of mushy green peas
* 1 avocado
* I clove of garlic
* 1 tablespoon of lime juice. or the juice from 1 lime 
* salt and pepper 
* hot sauce to taste, if you please.  

Directions
Place all the ingredients into a food processor and mix to the consistency you prefer! 


I purchased some Locally grown organic bell peppers. Are these not the prettiest peppers?

In order to turn these bell peppers into ” Scoop” chips.  Try to cut them up in order to make each piece as ” scoopy” as possible.  Some will be ” Scoopier”

When I ate this for dinner.  I was surprised on how fast these peppers filled me up.  These peppers are crunchy and crisp.  The scoops fit a nice amount of dip.  This is also a nice light snack or dinner for a hot summer evening.  Also, I think that Bell Pepper Scoop Chips work well with Mexican themed

 

 

I really enjoyed these, and I will most defiantly be eating these again.  This was a great ” light” dinner.
