Layered Black Bean Dip

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Starrynews

Adapted this from Kraft Food & Family magazine. So simple and quick, but completely delicious! You can make it as hot as you want by changing up what kind of salsa you use. I also like to add a little lime juice, unless I am using the lime salsa. If you can't find the 4 cheese blend, you can use a mixture of cheddar and monterey jack (or pepperjack, for an extra little kick!) Serve with tortilla chips!

I really liked the use of cream cheese in this dip, & the layering is so simple! Used a mild salsa, too, then had to put out tortilla chips (which my other half prefers) AND those large corn scoops (which I like)! Either way, very, very nice! Thanks for posting the recipe!
