Bean dip is a delicious side/appetizer and can be good with almost any main dish (Mexican/Texmex foods are usually served with Bean Dip). The consistency and texture of the bean dip is very satisfying especially when paired with chips or tortilla. I recommend adding your own flare to this dish. (I added Olives!)


Prep Time: 30 minutes
Chilling Time: 1 hour
Yield: 18 servings
1 15-ounce can dark red
kidney beans, rinsed and
drained well
1⁄3 cup salsa
½ teaspoon chili powder
1 4-ounce can diced
green chili peppers,
drained
1 cup reduced-fat sour
cream
1 cup seeded and chopped
tomato
¼ cup sliced green onions
¼ cup reduced-fat sharp
cheddar cheese
72 baked tortilla chips
(about 5 cups)
¼ cup sliced olives

1. In food processor bowl combine beans, salsa and chili powder. Process until nearly smooth. Spread in shallow bowl or decorative 9-inch pie plate.
