Black Bean Dip
1 (16 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup prepared salsa, hot or mild
2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
2 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Serve tortilla chips with this lively dip. Fresh baked low fat chips have a more pronounced corn flavor than store-bought. To make your own, lightly brush corn tortillas on one side with corn oil and sprinkle the oiled side with salt. Cut the tortillas into 8 wedges and arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake them at 400 degrees until crisp, 8-10 minutes.

In a food processor, combine black beans, salsa, lime juice, cilantro, and cumin. Process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
