Diane's Bean Dip

My sister-in-law, Diane (I have three!), made this pantry-ready dip for me when I visited her home about 10 years ago. It quickly became a staple. I've found that I like to add a few things, listed as optional.

  1. Yay for me and you and Salsa Bean Dip! what a surprise...excited that I made something that noteworthy! Come let's have it again, we'd have to go to Riggins, go thrifting, laugh, walk, talk, fish, eat(of course) and steal cookies.
