Spicy Black Bean Dip

After encountering a delicious and simple dip at a local restaurant, I got a hankering to whir up one of my own.

Black beans are the perfect base, as they have a blank slate of flavor and ideal creamy texture. Coriander, parsley and onion add tons of flavor and spice, creating a more dimensional dip.Spicy Black Bean Dip | Zestful Kitchen
