A really good black bean dip for tortilla chips. Top with shredded Cheddar Chesse if you like. The recipe comes from Sunset magazine.

Top Review by Geema

I had no idea how this recipe would turn out, since the addition of beer is so unusual in a bean dip. Surprise, surprise, it's a winner. I made half a recipe for just my DH and me, lightly pureed the beans only, and kept the rest chunky. It was a delicious snack scooped up with some Red Hot Blues, our favorite tortilla chips. Glad you posted this one, Barb.
