Author Notes: I threw this together a few summers ago while living in Houston, where I had all of these ingredients on hand. I like this dip because it's not overly beany, not overly creamy, and has my all-time favorite flavors of cilantro and jalapeno. It's great with tortilla chips, strips of bell pepper, carrots, and grape tomatoes. megbennington
