Went to make another black bean dip for an after Christmas party and didn't have the cream cheese it called for so I went looking for a recipe I had everything for and this was it! I substituted canned chipotle peppers for the jalapenos and monterey jack for the mozzarella. I thought the chipotle's gave enough heat so I left out the cayenne. Will be great with veggie dippers or tortilla or pita chips!
