black bean & corn dip

Wait.....this doesn't look like black bean and corn dip!

I made this dip for a potluck last weekend and it was a hit. I have no photo, that's how fast it disappeared.
But here's a pic of some yummy chocolate cake I made..........the cake disappeared too.

Black Bean & Corn Dip
3 cups fresh or frozen corn, cooked and cooled
1 - 14oz. can black beans, drained
1 cup diced tomatoes, canned or fresh
1/2 cup plain yogurt (plus a couple tablespoons if needed)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
taco seasoning (I used 1/2 of the packet)
diced green onions

(you can substitute 1 cup of sour cream instead of the mayo/yogurt.)

Mix up the yogurt and mayo with the taco seasoning. I used 1/2 an envelope of mild taco seasoning and added a few red pepper flakes for flavor. If you make your own taco seasoning, just add enough to your taste.
Combine the corn, beans, tomatoes, and cheese in a large mixing bowl. Add mayo/ yogurt dressing. Mix in cheese. At this point if it seems too thick add in a couple of extra tablespoons of yogurt. Top with green onions.
We like it chilled and served with tortilla chips.
You could add in green chiles, jalapenos, salsa, olives, etc.
It would also be yummy warmed up as a hot dip.

Enjoy! Tami
