Recipe: Tex-mex black bean dip

We have found this recipe to be awesome, and after serving this at a Northwestern bowl game watching party, I figured I needed to post it online where I could share it easily and find it in the future if I need it, since I only have it in the old copy of Cooking Light where it came from. Note I have removed all the low fat stuff and tiny amounts of cheese that they recommend, otherwise it wouldn’t be so good.
