“I love Emerald Valley Kitchens bean dips from Eugene, OR, and I decided to find my own bean dip instead of purchasing theirs. Don't be fooled by the ingredients into thinking it's too healthy to be delicious because this is good for you and tasty too! I found this recipe on posted by Pableaux Johnson. He takes it to potlucks because it's simple to fix. This is great unheated just the way it is, but you could also heat it in the microwave and top with a little cheese if you prefer a hot bean dip. I mixed my salt and pepper with the other ingredients instead of adding it on top before serving. If you're using canned black beans, drain and rinse them. I used black beans already prepared from my freezer.”
