    This dip is sooo yummy! I loved the salsa (made my own) with the cream cheese and then the beans, corn, lettuce, onion and cheese. The flavours go so well together and make for a really good dip. It looks very pretty, too and comes together easily. Perfect for a party, like you said.<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this winner with us, diane!<br/>Made and reviewed for the Lettuce Tag Game in the Spain/Portugal forum March 2012.

    I decided to try this layered dip because it was a cross between the bean layer dip and the pink dip my family likes. I added some lemon juice and cumin powder to the black beans, used chopped tomatoes rather than lettuce and green onions rather than the vidalia. I served with tortilla chips and frito scoops. It was a hit and will definitely be making this in the future. It could also be made low fat by using low fat cream cheese and low fat cheese. Thanks for posting this yummy recipe.

    Made this for a football party and it was delish!! The only thing I did because it is tomato season was add some diced cherry tomatoes and EVERYONE loved it! Will make again! Thanks for the recipe!

    This was excellent!!! I wish I could give it more stars. I brought this to a BBQ. It was so easy to put together. The only thing I did alittle different was add a couple Tbsp of Rotel tomatoes to the vegies, but that is the only thing. The recipe was followed exactly, other than that. Thank you so much, and I'll bring this to other gatherings! :)

    This is fabulous! We loved the black beans and corn in it. Very different and VERY good. Can't wait to make it again, diane525!!!


I was a chef for 18 years, cooking at a Ivy League College I still love to cook,I still cater occasionally, but wanted to fulfill my other dream. I am a artist/muralist, I was creative with food, but now I am creative with paint. Check out my website: www.custompaintingbydi.com <br> <br> I'm happily married to Bob, we have a dog Missy, shes a Rottie. We live in Belchertown, MA. Love gardening, and have a fish pond/water garden. Love to shop, and try new things. <br> <br>My family is very important to me. My Mom and I cook together all the time.Mom was a cook for 29 years at the College I worked at. My brother thinks he is Emril, and is always cooking new yummy things...his wife does not cook. My sister, well, she needs some improving, shes a quick and easy way as possible cook I rather spend the time and have a great dish. <br> <br>I love to cook for other people and show off my talents---I go all out and decorate the table with a theme, different levels and table coverings, maybe add some white lights, and flowers or pine branches for the holidays. I love a elegant table :) <br> <br>My pet peeve is: going out for a nice dinner, paying good $$ and being disappointed because I know I could have cooked it better, or ordering , say, a salad and it not being fresh--the really irks me. Alot of times I will special order something and make up my own menu--that way I know they have to make mine special, with special attention. My hubby hates when I do that.
