Bean Dip (Suitable for passing!)

1- 16 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
1- 16 oz can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup salsa (mild, medium or hot to suit your taste)
juice of 1 lime
handful of cilantro leaves
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Combine all ingredients in food processor until well blended and creamy.
Serve with tortilla chips, vegetables or baked pitas or tortillas.

Hints: fresh lime juice and cilantro make a huge difference- try not to substitute. The flavors get more intense and blended after a day in the fridge, but I prefer to eat it at room temp. Try and bring it to room temp before serving
