Black Bean Jalapeno Dip/Side Dish

This bean concoction is great as a dip with tortilla chips or as a side dish with yesterdays Chili Lime Chicken and a salad. I like to double it as it goes quickly. Add chopped avocado for a new twist! This will definitely be a recipe you use over and over! xo

1 15 ounce Can Black Beans or Black Eyed Peas or both if you're doubling, drained
1 t or more to taste Fresh Jalapeno, Minced,
Or Pickled Jalapeno is fine, too if that's what you have
1/4 C Red Bell Pepper, Diced
1/4 C Green Onion, Diced
1/4 t Ground Cumin
1/4 t Ground Pepper
1/2 t Salt or more to taste
1 T Lime Juice
2 T Fresh Cilantro, Chopped

Place drained beans in a bowl. Add all other ingredients and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 2 - 4 hours to develop the best flavor. If adding avocado do it just before serving.
