Mel’s Kitchen Cafe is a great recipe website. I haven’t made anything from her that I haven’t like, so far. This dip is always a favorite. I usually leave out the avocados because they get mushy so quickly. This recipe is great and I am always asked for the recipe. Here’s the link to Mel’s Kitchen Cafe.

  • 1 can white beans, I use Great Northern or Cannellini beans
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1-2 avocados, diced (I usually leave these out unless I am serving it immediately)
  • 1/2 cup red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup green pepper, diced
  • 1-2 Roma tomatoes, diced and seeded
  • 2 tablespoons ¬†chopped red onion
  • 2-3 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup Kraft Zesty Italian salad dressing
  • Squeeze of fresh lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Tortilla chips for serving
  1. Drain and rinse the beans in a colander.  Add them to a large bowl.
  2. Add the corn, avocados, red pepper, green pepper, tomatoes, red onion and cilantro. Pour in the dressing and gently fold the ingredients together until evenly coated.
  3. Squeeze the lime juice over the top. Gently mix. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with chips.
