Easy Black Bean Dip

I orginally set out to make a Black Bean salad but ended up making this dip instead.

The black beans are a great source of protein and fiber. The protein + fiber combination in black beans and other legumes help support blood sugar balance and blood sugar regulation.

Many people think about black beans (and beans in general) as problem-causing foods in the digestive tract, perhaps largely because of gas production. But recent research has shown that black beans actually provide special support in the lower large intestine (colon) where gas if often produced.

 Easy Black Bean Dip

1 cup black beans
1/2 cup organic corn
1/4 cup prepared organic salsa

Rinse and drain black beans.
In a food processor, add all ingredients into a smooth paste.

Serve with your favorite wheat free crackers, flatbread and veggies.

I soaked and cooked the black beans in a slow cooker, but you can use organic canned beans instead.  Just remember to rinse and drain them.

I like to use organic salsa which is prepared with apple cider vinegar over regular white vinegar.  White vinegar is not recommended for those with candida / yeast problems.
