My husband’s first cousin April brought this dish to a family get together. It was inhaled. Since getting the recipe, I have made it four or five times. It is tasty, reasonably healthy, and easy to throw together. I love that I usually have the majority of the ingredients in the cabinet. Everyone who has tried this dip has asked for the recipe. It would be even better with fresh tomatoes. If it doesn’t stop raining, we will never have any though…. We have had 3 inches already with another one or two to come. My poor plants are drowning… When it rains, it pours, I guess.


April’s Black Bean Dip

  • 2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can petite diced tomatoes, drained well
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 packages of Sazon Goya seasoning (you can find it here)
  • 1 lime, juiced

Mix all the ingredients together well and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. This lets the flavors really meld. I prefer to let it sit all night. Serve with tortilla chips, as a salsa on tacos or fajitas or just eat it with a spoon.
