Hot Cheesy Black Bean & Corn Dip

Cheesy Corn and Bean Dip

Need a quick & easy appetizer for your next cookout or party?  Then look no further.  This Corn & Black Bean dip is so full of flavor and super delicious!  Plus, it uses pantry staples and comes together in a flash.  You can use the leftovers to make quesadillas the next day.

This is a great dip for parties, weekends, cook outs, you name it.   My business partner has a pair of miniature donkeys.  Their names are Corn and Beans.  This reminds me of them.
