I really like this recipe because it does not include the usual refried beans or the canned chili I find in many other recipes, which I don't really care for at all. This is also a better-for-you dip, but it is still delicious. This needs to refrigerate for at least 1 hour. I got the recipe from Kraft.

I too enjoy the black beans rather than refried beans/canned chili. The others seem so salty rather than flavorful. This is a case of the "better for you" being better tasting, I always get compliments!
