I've decided that if I want to try and keep any semblance of sanity, and still put out great recipes, I may have to stop trying to be so witty and cute in my posts...but am I even very cute or witty in my posts? Anyway, here's a dip I enjoyed while watching the Super Bowl. It's easy, fast, and healthy! Just don't tell anyone. This is definitely going to be my new go to recipe when I want something fun to eat, but don't want to put a lot of time in to it. It's smoky, tangy, and eating it with a dollop of sour cream on top cuts through the spice a bit. I made this on Saturday evening and it was so good, I almost didn't have enough for the game. Now that I am re-stocked on black beans, I have a feeling I'll be making this again very soon.
