Why we love this dish?
Black beans are loaded with protein and fiber, making this appetizer a great healthy addition to your summer barbeque menu.  This black bean dip is an inexpensive dish to make, so it is an ideal option for large groups of people. Corn, also high in fiber, is readily available in the summer months and can be found almost anywhere; its sweet texture is both tasty and refreshing.  Those who like a spicy kick will enjoy the jalapenos in this dish, and for those with milder taste buds, they can be easily removed.
