Bean Dip

Delicious AND Nutritious! Ellie has been saying that lately about "healthy snacks"! I LOVE this dip. It is my "new craving". We had it a few weeks ago while at some friends' house. I had her send me the recipe and I made it pronto. I've been snacking on it on and off all day! But because it is so healthy, I'm not feeling a bit guilty. Maybe if I keep this in the house, I won't eat ridiculous amounts of Halloween candy this month (or next)!

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can shoepeg corn, rinsed and drained
1 can diced tomatoes w/green chilies, rinsed and drained (next time I will use regular diced tomatoes)
green onions chopped, about 1/2 a bunch
cilantro, about 1/2 bunch
garlic, 1 spoonful of refrigerated minced
small can sliced black olives, drained
a little lemon pepper
(I also added a splash of lemon juice AND a splash of lime juice)

mix well and serve with Frito type corn chips OR dipper of your choice
