Awesome Easy Bean Dip

Awesome Easy Peasy Funny Looking Bean Dip

Awesome Easy Bean Dip just takes 3 main ingredients – black beans, Rotel tomatoes, and cream cheese – and a food processor & voila! Some fabulous dip perfect for a party

Isn’t this purdy?? It’s Purple! Well, sort of a greyish purple. And it’s yummy and about as easy as a recipe can be. When I first started making this, I had in mind a chunky dip where ingredients are mixed together but not pureed. It looked really unappetizing. So I put it in the food processor and turned it into a smooth dip. It may be funny looking, but it’s really good!

If you want to make a smaller batch, just use a 3-oz package of cream cheese and 1 can each of black beans and Rotel tomatoes. This is not as thick as most bean dips but clings just fine to  tortilla chips. I have other plans for this dip – I think it will make a fabulous enchilada sauce. You might see this recipe appear later poured over some chicken enchiladas or burritos. Enjoy!
