Black Bean Dip

15 oz canned black beans, rinsed and drained

1 cup(s) cilantro, fresh, leaves, loosely packed, plus extra for garnish

1/2 cup(s) fat free salsa

1/2 cup(s) plain fat-free yogurt

1 tsp ground cumin

1/4 tsp table salt


• Put all ingredients in a food processor or blender; blend until desired consistency—either chunky or smooth. Spoon dip into a serving bowl and garnish with cilantro. Yields about 1/4 cup of dip per serving.


• This dip will stay fresh for up to one day in the refrigerator. Double the recipe if you're expecting a large crowd.
