Black Bean Hummus ~ Healthy Snack Time!

Ingredients :
1 -2 cups of preseasoned black beans: click on link or see video below on making homemade black beans from scratch. (quick alternative is using 1 can of cooked black beans + add your own seasonings.)
1-2 teaspoons of lime juice
Blend all ingredients in food processor until smooth.
You can also add your favorite salsa in the center for extra zesty dipping.
I was on the lookout for a  healthier snacking chips and came across "Organic Blue Tortilla Chip" from Garden of Eatin'.
These chips are very crunchy and have a true corn taste that I'm sure you'll love.
They have become my family's favorite healthier snack chip of the year!

Add fillets, and cook for about 3 minutes on both sides until done. Transfer fillets to a plate. Add 1 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil to skillet. Saute onions, mushrooms, bell pepper until slightly brown, and add seasonings to taste. Add fresh shredded kale and saute for about 2-3 minutes longer. Return turkey fillets to skillet and toss.
