Sweet 'n Spicy Black Bean Dip

September  3, 2013
Author Notes

This is a fun party dip that hits on almost every flavor imaginable. It's made with black beans and Mexican spices, topped with pineapple (sweet & sour), queso fresco (salty & umami) and a drizzle of sriracha (spicy). As an added bonus, I also tried to combine textures - soft dip, crumbly cheese, juicy pineapple, and crunchy chips for dipping. —foxeslovelemons
