Kick It Up A Notch

I love dips! They are mostly packed with protein and make a very tasty snack, appetizer or side dish, plus they are so simple to make and take seconds to whip up.  This black bean dip took me three minutes to make (seriously, I timed it)!  All you need is a food processor and the ingredients listed below and you are in business! 
 

The dip has a nice kick from the red onion and is amazing to pair with crackers and vegetables.  This dip is also fantastic spread on a wrap or sandwich as a flavorful and healthier alternative to mayonnaise.   The options are endless!
