Super Bowl is right around the corner. If we’re honest with ourselves, most of us are just as excited about the party snacks as we are about the game!

Yet, if you’ve worked hard all month to stick to a healthy low carb diet, you are probably a little nervous about Super Bowl. Who wants to blow a month’s worth of results on cheap take-out pizza and potato chips!?

Not me.

Amazing 5-Ingredient Skinny Chicken Enchilada Dip #lowcarb #lowfat #healthy

I find if I make a little effort to plan lightened-up low carb snacks, it’s much easier to avoid the junk food.

Today’s Skinny Chicken Enchilada Dip is a party snack that tastes devilishly decadent, but is actually high protein, low carb, low(er) in fat, and gluten free.

It’s rich and cheesy with a zesty note from Old El Paso Red Enchilada Sauce. When you dip down into this hot creamy dish, you’ll scoop up refried beans, chunks of chicken, and an ultra silky spiced cheese sauce!

You can serve Skinny Chicken Enchilada Dip with tortilla chips if you like. Yet if you serve it with baked vegetable chips or raw cut vegetables, it’s just as wonderful, and you will refrain from a lot of heavy carbs and calories.
