The Super Bowl is upon us and while I don’t usually care about the game or the commercials, I do care about the food! I think I speak for most food bloggers when I say that the Super Bowl is all about the food!

Typical Super Bowl food usually involves lots of cheese, dips, burgers, fried foods, etc. You know, the really delicious stuff. But, who says all the delicious stuff can’t also be healthy? Not this girl.

Your regular taco dip is typically comprised of refried beans, cream cheese plus cheddar cheese, sour cream, etc. My version swaps refried beans with black beans, less cheese, and in place of sour cream, Greek yogurt. With the Greek yogurt and black beans, this dip is also a great source of protein. And don’t think that these swaps makes this dip any less delicious! I had no issues pretty much inhaling this stuff for lunch. These taco dip cups are fresh, delicious, low in fat, and individually portioned! Food is always more adorable when it is in individual servings, don’t you agree?!

I served mine in my favorite little serving bowls from Pier 1, but you could also use those small plastic cups to serve the dip in individual portions. And if you’d rather, you can also certainly make it all in one baking dish! Either way, this is a dip you don’t have to feel guilty about eating!
