Recipe: Spicy Bean Dip with Corn

This is very similar to the refried beans I made the other day, consider this a variation more than a new recipe.  It adds corn for sweetness, texture, and color and more cayenne for a kick. This is great for a cookout or to serve with chips/pita chips and a few icy beers.

You will need:

1 can black beans, washed and drained
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
8oz frozen corn, thawed and drained
1/2 cup medium heat salsa
Garlic powder

In a large saute pan saute the onion and green pepper over medium heat until just soft.  Add a dash of salt and pepper.  Add the beans and salsa and stir to combine.  Add in the garlic powder and a good pinch of cayenne (between 1/16th and 1/8th teaspoon)  Stir.  When the beans are hot begin smashing them with a fork until the desired texture is reached.  Taste for heat and add salsa/cayenne until it reaches the heat level desired.  When ALL smashing is finished add the corn and stir through.  Taste again for salt and adjust as needed.
