Recipe Swap - Creamy Black Bean Dip

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.
