80(ish)--- Buffalo Bean Dip

Do you need a yummy app for that holiday party coming up?And maybe have it not blow your entire calorie budget for the day?

How about a simple bean dip..... with a kick?  Reminiscent of this, but vegetarian and higher in fiber!

Buffalo Bean Dip
Serves 8

2 cans white beans, drained and rinsed
2/3 cup part skim ricotta cheese
2/3 cup hot wing sauce
1/3 cup chopped white onion
3 stalks celery, finely chopped
3 oz blue cheese crumbles (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large food processor, combine white beans, ricotta, and hot sauce.  Mix until a puree is formed.

Transfer mixture to a bowl and stir in celery, onion, and blue cheese.  Prepare a shallow baking dish with baking spray, then transfer mixture into the dish.  Bake uncovered for 20 minutes, or until hot.

Serve warm with tortilla chips, or crudite for dipping.
