Easy Black Bean Dip

Easy Black Bean DipThis dip is ideal for that special game day party. It can be made in 5 minutes and is easy to vary for different tastes.

If you’re having a big game day party, you might want to double or triple the recipe and separate into 2 or 3 different batches. Make one really spicy with extra jalapeno.  Make another with more lime juice, Note this is also very good with canned green chiles instead of jalapenos – be careful about picking the heat you want. You can get hot canned green chiles, but it’s also common to find medium or mild in typical grocery stores. I like to just blend canned chiles into a dip like this as the last ingredient a small amount at a time, tasting as I go along.

I used just Original Rotel Tomatoes & Diced Green Chiles. I typically have all these ingredients. It’s very good and always welcome at a party. Hope you enjoy it!
