    Shannon Cooks's Note:

    These days, who isn't on a budget at the grocery store? I found this recipe on the side of a bag of lentils - it's pretty good! This recipe yields a lot of dip so you may want to halve it. I prefer monterey jack cheese in this recipe but you can use whatever cheese you like!

      This was excellent! Very rich flavor, and a hearty meal. Next time I'll puree half of it to get more of a "dip" consistency, but I'll definitely be making this often. Thanks for sharing!
