Black Bean Dip

I mentioned this recipe in passing when we had our New Year's Eve dinner. It's honestly SO yummy and so easy, and with it only having 4 ingredients, it's definitely a friend of the frugal kitchen! My husband swears he doesn't like black beans, but he had NO problem making a dent in this. My girls couldn't get enough of it either!

Here are the ingredients --

1 brick of cream cheese
1 can of black beans
about a cup of salsa
about 4 oz of grated cheese

All you do is spread the cream cheese on a plate, add a layer of salsa, a layer of black beans, and a layer of cheese. Then, you microwave for approximately 2 minutes or until the cheese is melted. That's it!
