Bean and Banana Dip

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Roosie

This is an Ecuadorian recipe which I got from the book, "South American Cooking". The author suggests that it is good for tailgate parties. Unusual and maybe even a little "weird", but one of those combos that surprises you with how good it is. This would halve easily if you're not feeling daring and would rather make a smaller quantity. :)

This was a hit. We will definitely make it again. (I wasn't sure what to do with the bananas so I just cut them into small pieces?) Next time I might decrease the amount of banana and put in a little more meat or beans. But it was still tasty. Thanks for sharing!
