    "It" dip

    Here's one dip that everybody should try just once. Many folks I know would swear that it wouldn't be the last time you tried it! It's a healthy dip that tastes so good, you will swear that it's very, very unhealthy for you. Basically, this recipe defies all logic that healthy food can't taste good to those who may be used to not eating healthy. I will say this.... at a recent GTG, there were about 6 or 7 dips on one table for chips. The first one to disappear was this dip and nobody was thinking that it was "healthy". They scarfed it down just because of the taste. I do not know where we stumbled upon this recipe so unfortunately I do not know the official name. I do recall one person at the GTG saying that this dip was "it", though. Hence the name.

    15.5 ounce can of black beans
    9 ounces of canned or frozen corn
    1 large tomato, chopped
    2 ripe avocados [med to large]
    1 lime [juices only]
    3 tbsp olive oil
    1 tbsp cilantro
    salt and ground pepper

    Combine everything into one bowl, stir until everything is well mixed and refrigerate for 1/2 an hour or more. Don't worry if there are avocado chunks still in the mix, this doesn't need to become like a soup. Sometimes, I'll mix up a little bit after crushing only part of the avocados just so that there are chunks leftover in the mix. Serve with chips and enjoy. The texture and flavors are simply superb.

    Question... for the "It" dip. Are the beans drained or do you use the liquid in the can too?

    Hello, Carol. We have always drained the beans for that recipe. The only liquids you want introduced are from the tomato, lime and olive oil. Enjoy!
