These always go over well with our Bunco group. Both are super easy and can be made with things you probably have in your pantry. They can also be easily modified and you can use lower fat ingredients without really effecting the taste.
Black Bean Pinwheels
1 lb Cream Cheese
1 Can Black Beans, rinsed and drained
2 Cups Shredded Cheese
1/2 Cup Salsa
1 Pack Taco Seasoning
Soften cream cheese. Mix in all other ingredients, except beans. Once the mixture is blended well, fold in beans.
Spread over tortillas and roll up. Let chill for 30+ minutes then slice into bite sized pieces. Serve with extra salsa and or guacamole.
The recipe is great because you can add all kinds of things - corn, peppers, fresh veggies, etc.
Buffalo Chicken Dip Like wings without the mess!
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup pepper sauce, such as Franks® Red Hot®
1 cup Salad dressing - Ranch or Blue Cheese
2 cups diced cooked chicken (can use 2, 10 oz cans)
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, stir together the cream cheese and hot pepper sauce until well blended. Mix in the Ranch dressing, chicken and 1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. Spread into a 9x13 inch baking dish.
Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Top with remaining cheese and bake an additional 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted and browned. If oil collects on the top, dab it off using a paper towel.
Serve with tortilla chips, butter crackers, chicken crakers, celery & carrot sticks, etc
