Frijoles & Chilies Buttermilk Dip or Sauce

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by Montana Heart Song

This can be a dip for vegetables, chips or smoked meats. I add a little more milk to the dip to use as a sauce inside the tortillas when I make chicken or cheese enchiladas. White sauce inside, red sauce outside with cheese.

This was really good. I made 2 changes, because of what was in my pantry. I used one can of pintos and one can of black beans, and left out the dried cilantro because I didn't have any. I took it to a church carry in and was asked by a few people for the recipe. The one thing that i think could be better is if it were a little thicker. My husband also said that it didn't look too inviting, but not sure how I could fix that.
