Spicy Three Bean Dip with Chips

When I need a go-to recipe, I count on friends to come through.

Family tested recipes are all well and good, but why not mix it up and serve up something new?

Recipes passed from friend to friend have been satisfaction tested to the ultimate degree.

This bean dip recipe was passed from to my friend, Carol, from her friend, Carol.

How can you miss when two Carols – and their family and friends – rave about the same bean dip.

Carol was missing the black eyed peas so she subbed in a few kidney beans. That’s what I love about recipes like this – almost any can of beans you have in the cupboard will work.

Finely chopped onion, cilantro and jalapeno really take this easy bean dip over the top when it’s showcased in crunchy corn chips.

Thank you Carol! I’m passing the torch along to my foodie friends. This is an appetizer recipe worth sharing.

Happy, healthy cooking!

      I do to. They’re so filling. I made my own tortilla chips the other day to go with the dip. They turned out really good. I might do that more often. Have a good New Year Anita!
