Black Bean Spread

Mary Gelfond


This is a quick and easy to prepare recipe. If you don't have Rotelle tomatoes, you can use mild or spicy salsa. The taste will change slightly.

Made this for a Halloween dinner. Placed crackers into the dip as tomb stones. You can write on the "tomb stones" with a food safe marker.
