My mom loaned me a recipe magazine called Taste of Home Potluck - a great magazine full of great recipes! I made this for a family gathering last weekend and it was superb! Here is the recipe:
2 pkgs cream cheese
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained, divided
3/4 c. shredded cheddar cheese
6 green onions, chopped
1 1/2 t. ground cumin
dash cayenne pepper
1/4 c. shredded cheddar cheese
2 T. diced fresh tomato
2 T. chopped green onion
In a food processor, cover and process cream cheese until smooth. Add 1/2 of the beans, cover and pulse until blended. Transfer to a bowl; stir in the cheese, onions, cumin, cayenne and remaining beans. (I spread it in a pie plate at this point.) Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
Just before serving garnish with cheese, tomato, and onion. Serve with tortilla chips.
This is what it looked like before I put the tomatoes, onions, and cheese on top. Doesn't it look like cookies and cream ice cream?
I would also recommend leaving it out for a little while before serving it so the cream cheese can soften.
