Kidney Bean Dip

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by teresas

This is out of my "Company's coming, most loved appetizers" cookbook...If you like things hot, add more cayenne pepper to this dip. It has a pleasant flavor and an attractive browned can substitute 2 cans of black beans, rinsed and drained, for the kidney beans...serve with tortilla chips or Fritos...

I just made the salsa myself mixing and partially blending 1 big tomato, half onion chopped, green coriander (cilantro) and adjusted the taste with salt and pepper. At the moment I did not have canned kidney beans at home, but since I wanted to this in any case, I used dried kidney beans and I cooked them with the pressure cooker until done. Finally this came together delicious and very tasty; I used this as side dish! This can be used as dip but and as side dish as well. For the top layer I used sliced cheddar cheese but I did not use the monterey jack cheese as this was not available. Thanks a lot for this delicious dish!
