Northern Bean Dip

This dip is a great way to get your family to eat beans. If you are like me, I am always looking for new ways to enjoy beans. Here is another great recipe too.  It tastes good and is good for your too. Some of my family liked theirs heated up. Cold or warm works. If you wanted to make your own homemade beans that would be fantastic, if not you can use the canned ones.  

2- 14 0z canned of Northern Beans drained and rinsed
1 C salsa (I used homemade)
1 tsp cumin
optional * 1/2 onion diced
1/2 tsp sea salt with iodine
2 avocados peeled and mashed
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 to 1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp lime juice
1 big tomato chopped up in pieces
Chili powder and sea salt to garnish
serve with chips or vegetables, or plain

1. Mash or blend in food processor the beans, stir in the salsa, cumin and salt. Spread out in a 8x8 pan.
2. Then mash the avocados stir in the garlic, chili powder, salt, and lime juice. Spread on top of the beans
3. Spread cut up  tomatoes on top and sprinkle with chili powder and a little salt. Let set in the fridge for about 30 min. To let all the flavors combine together. Enjoy!
