Black Bean Spread / Dip With Lime and Cilantro

Total Time
Prep 7 mins

I make this frequently in the summertime. I make a fresh salsa in my food processor, give it a quick rinse and whip this up right after. The two dips are great together and make easy work for a bbq. I use this with everything from my Southwest Turkey Burgers (recipe posted) to a spread on tortillas with eggs in the morning. I just love that it's virtually fat-free but tastes great.

This dip is heavenly. I added some sour cream to decrease the heat of the garlic and I cut out the lime juice. So creamy!

This is very good. I ma a black bean lover and would eat near ANYTHING with black beans in it! I had it on toast for breakfast this morning, after serving it as a dip last night! Next time I think I will use half the lime juice though, as I would rather taste the beans than have the lime overpower.
