Cinco De Mayo is coming up and when you love Mexican food as much as I do, it's a great excuse to have it more often than not. So you may be seeing a few more Mexican recipes leading up to May 5th....probably some margaritas too.
This black bean dip is actually very healthy for us, it's just the chips we need to watch out for. This is a great, easy recipe to whip up for backyard barbecues and parties as well. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do.
