Ingredients

  • 2 cups kidney beans (canned, low-sodium)
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar

  • 1 cup cheddar cheese (grated)

Directions

Notes

If you don’t have a blender, you can mix the first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl and mash with a fork. Then stir in the onion and cheese.

You can store this dip in the fridge for up to 4 or 5 days.

I tripled all the spices (chili powder, dried chopped onion, and cumin) and it was gobbled up by the elementary students I taught. Watch out, though: if youngsters watch the preparation, they might say the dip looks gross. When they try it, they like it
I used black beans instead of kidney beans. The participants loved the recipe.
