Black Bean Dip

February 11, 2014


Author Notes: I frantically called my mom the afternoon of NYE asking for ideas to make an easy dip for a NYE party. I didn’t have much time to plan ahead because work kept me busy but mom came to the rescue! She saw this recipe on Show Me The Curry and she has made this a bunch of times. She adds her own twist to eat each time she makes it and its always super delicious. I guess I get my “I can’t follow a recipe” from her and how ironic that I have a recipe blog! Anyway, this dip turned out delicious and only took me 20 minutes to put together. This is definitely a crowd pleaser…perfect for any party.themessimake.com

Serves: a crowd

Ingredients

  • 2 cans black beans

  • 1 small red bell pepper – chopped
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1 cup cilantro leaves – chopped
