black bean queso

Oh lord people.  You know I have a weakness for queso.  I’m not even picky about it.  Scoop it out of the Tostitos jar, microwave it and I’m all set.  So when I found a queso that is easy to make, flavorful and has black beans in it…well then I’m about to die of happiness.  I mean black beans practically make the queso a vegetable, right?  It would be at my son’s school, but that’s a whole other rant I’ll go on later.

what you need:

2 cans of Hormel chili, no beans

1 8oz block of cream cheese

4 oz Velveeta cheese

1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon cayenne

cilantro, chopped for garnish

tortilla chips

what to do:

in a microwave safe bowl combine the first 3 ingredients.

Heat for 3 minutes in the microwave, stir thoroughly and then heat again for another 2 1/2 minutes.

remove, add black beans and spices, stir well to combine.

transfer to a serving dish, sprinkle with cilantro.

Serve and enjoy.
