You don’t have to travel to Mexico to feel the heat. Sit poolside, on a patio or a balcony sipping Margaritas and noshing on this dip. It also makes a great spread for a pork or steak burrito. For a different taste, substitute pinto beans for black beans. Sour cream can take the place of yogurt.
Summer eating is all about flavour. Focus on light fruits, meat that tastes as good cold as it does hot and veggies and lots of drinks low in sugar. Pair this dip with a chilled Margarita or any of the cocktails posted over the last two days.
