In my book, Labor Day weekend is a weekend to celebrate and spend time with family and loved ones.  In college it was a day to play and party.  No matter how you spend this weekend this Skinny Roasted Red Pepper and Black Bean Dip should be part of it.  

This Dip is quick and easy to make in a blender and then baked in the oven.  It's ready in less than 30 minutes with hardly a mess made in the kitchen.  Plus,the whole family or crowd will enjoy it.  

Make this deliciousness even healthier by using veggies instead of chips to dip, or have chips and vegetables as options.  Everyone likes options, and I love them both.
