Warm Enough For A Dip

Memorial Day is the official gateway to summer. Dig out those bathing suits, dust off the pool toys, it's time for all water related activities!!! Ok, so I don't know about where you live, but where we do, there is no way it's going to be warm enough to be swimming this weekend! Yes, by Monday it's supposed to be 90, so maybe the water will be warming up, but after a week of chilly rain, I'm betting many will be enjoying the water from a deck, on a chair, w/ the warm sun beating down on them! But a dip you can sink a chip into?? Well, rain or shine that's a good thing! This one comes from our friend Tina of Mommy's Kitchen--one of my favorite blogs to find inspiration on. As I blogged about earlier this week, Alex has just recently discovered his love for Mexican food, and one of his favorites is any cheese or tomato product that can be put in his mouth via chip :) Combine those 2, throw in some beans for protein and wah-lah, a new treat for us, rather it be for the upcoming holiday or any day of the week!

Cheesy Black Bean Dip

1 16 oz package Original Velveeta, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 15 oz. can black beans, rinsed
1 11 oz. can Mexican corn (has red & green bell peppers in it), drained
1 c. chunky salsa (the original called for hot, I will use mild)

Combine all ingredients in a microwavable bowl. Microwave on high for 5 minutes or until Velveeta is completely melted, stirring after 3 mins. If needed,can put in small crock to keep warm!
