Chipotle Sunflower Seed Dip

If you’re like me, you need to do a lot of snacking to stave off hunger. And it’s easy to enjoy your snacking habit and still stick to a sensible nutrition plan if you have healthy, flavorful, and accessible options to keep you going.

So many dips start with beans or cheese, but this hearty nut- and seed-based dip will keep you full and satisfied through to your next meal. The citrus and the chipotle give it a special and unexpected pop.

If you have parties planned, make a bunch of this one and surprise your guests with something they’ve probably never tried before. Make some carrot, cucumber, and jicama sticks to pair with it and nobody will even miss the chips.
