Snackin’ with Sarah Sellers: Herbed Cream Cheese & Bell Pepper Chips

Herbed Cream Cheese & Bell Pepper Chips

Ahhh Vegas. For some ridiculous reason I managed to completely avoid Vegas for most of my twenties, that is until I was awakened last year and discovered the brilliance of craps and all you drink tables. Yep, Sin City I’m in love!

So in honor of Vegas Week on American Idol I’m paying homage to the mighty poker chip. And what better way to top off a vibrant bell pepper then with cheese? Oh yeah…add some avocado and you can’t stop popping them in your mouth!

Incredibly easy, delicious and not too bad for you. Just use some low fat cream cheese to shave off a few more calories.
