This is a dip using refried black beans. It has become a tradition for me to make this every New Year's Day. Alot of people think refried beans from pintos are the only way to go, but I suggest trying this! The combination of the beans and cheeses and spices give it a remarkable flavor. You will bring home an empty pie plate! This is a Pampered Chef recipe.
