A Healthy Dip Recipe for all those Football Parties

Hello everyone, I hope all is well with you! I'm Lisa Orchard the best-selling author of the Super Spies Mystery/Thriller Series and I'm the guest here at GRRWG today.

Since it's football season, I thought I'd share with you a yummy recipe that's also healthy. :)  I call it Marie's dip because my sister in law Marie gave it to me. I have no idea what the real name is, but who cares? It's really good!  Here it is below:

Marie’s Dip Recipe

One can black beans rinsed well and drained
One can corn drained
A few tablespoons of lime juice
Packet of McCormick salsa seasonings, mild—you can find this in produce sections of the store
Half red onion diced fine (I rarely add this)
Green pepper diced fine
Red, orange, or yellow pepper diced fine
Two or three tomatoes diced fine
One avocado diced fine and added close to the time of serving (if timing is not working in your favor, salsa is good without it)

Mix together. If adding the red onion, let dip sit about a half hour before serving.

***I serve this with tortilla chips and it's yummy!

This is great for all those football parties that require you to bring a dish to pass. Easy to make and clean up!

And if you've got a tween/teen who's not interested in football, check out my Super Spies series! They're great reads for the tweens/teens in your life! Here's the cover and blurb for the first book in the series!

This book opens in a small town in Michigan where fifteen-year-old Sarah Cole is stuck spending the summer at her Aunt and Uncle’s with her sister, Lacey. She’s not happy with the situation until she befriends a girl named Jackie. The three girls stumble upon the ruthless murder of a reclusive neighborhood woman. One of the officers investigating the crime believes the girls are responsible for her death. Fearing that this officer will frame them for the murder, the girls organize their own detective squad. They become the Super Spies and start their own fact-finding mission.  The Super Spies can’t understand why anyone would want to murder the “Cat Lady” until they start digging into her past and discover a horrible crime that happened thirty years ago. They uncover a connection between the two crimes and attempt to bring this information to the police, only to be reprimanded for meddling in the inquest. Not only are the girls upset by the admonition, but they also struggle with the fact that their exuberant investigating could provide a legal loophole allowing the killer to go free. To make matters worse, the police don’t even believe them. Frustrated by this turn of events, the Super Spies realize it’s up to them to snare the Cat Lady killer, or die trying…
