This recipe is from The Best of Country Cooking. I've tried lots of black bean dips and this is my favorite!

  1. Saute beans, 1/2 cup onion, 1/2 cup tomato, salsa, garlic and chili powder in oil for 4-6 minutes, until heated through, gently smashing the beans.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in 3 tablespoons cheese and the cilantro.
  3. Transfer to a serving bowl; top with remaining onions, tomato and cheese.
  4. Serve warm with tortilla chips.

Really good. I swap chilli powder for cumin because it was for children. Used yellow onions and canned tomatoes. Once cooked, I blended everything with a hand blender for smooth texture. Then, I added 2 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice (but lime juice would be better..) . Excellent for a party.

My boyfriend is vegan, so I changed this recipe by adding vegan cheese instead. We use follow your heart. Anyway, this dip is really really filling! I added rotel tomatoes, so it added some extra flavor and spice to the dish. Quite tasty! Thanks for the quick and easy dip!

OMG this is soooo addicting...the only thing I did differently was to use non-fat cooking spray instead of oil for sauteeing, and I used reduced fat old cheddar cheese. The flavours mingle beautifully and it's even good cold! Will make this one again.
