If you like to dip...

...here is a yummy one. We like it with veggies, crackers, chips, and pita bread.

16 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup mild salsa
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (I always add more lime juice)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

Combine all ingredients in a food processor (I just use a good blender). Process until smooth. If desired, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

YUM!! I love it and I hope you will, too!

By way of introduction, and at Emily's suggestion, I'm Anna. Emily and I are friends here in Phoenix. She went to high school with my sister, I went to school with her sisters, and I was thrilled when she moved into the area! I have two daughters ages 4 and 2 1/2. My husband is in law enforcement and has a schedule that is not conducive to traditional meal-times. Four days a week we have "dinner" at lunch time so that we can have "dinner" together before he goes to work. I mention this as part of my disclaimer: my recipes may not fall in the "gourmet" category, most days there just isn't time, but I hope they will be enjoyed!
