Spicy Black Bean Dip

On Sunday, we went to a little valentine’s party and as usual, everyone was to bring an appetizer or a finger food. Husband’s solution is to always pick something up at the grocery store, but to me that screams that we didn’t care to set aside time to put love into something for our friends.

I did a little bit of research and came up with this simple, delicious dip. This appetizer is good for you in so many ways: free of fat, dense in nutrients, and low in calories {less than 80 per serving}, it is the perfect addition to any party.

We did have to end up going to the store to get pita chips and black corn chips for dipping, but that doesn’t count, right?


| Spicy Black Bean Dip

1 14 oz can drained black beans

1/2 can {5 oz or so} diced tomatoes with chillies

1/2 red onion, chopped

1/2 TSP salt

1/2 TSP cayenne pepper

1 TSP lime juice

2 TSP cumin

Throw everything in the blender and blend until smooth. Serve with a side of chips, celery, bell peppers. Done.

You can serve it hot or cold, but I preferred it to be a bit warm.
