My family likes bean dip and tortillas chips with Mexican meals or as a snack. Canned bean dip does not have enough flavor for us, and is very expensive. I experimented until I came up with this recipe, and vary it sometimes with minced fresh onion, chopped fresh cilantro, and diced avocado. I am presenting the basic recipe hoping your family will suggest additions, as mine will do.
