spicy Mexican bean dip {gf}

I hope you all had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend! We are headed back to Knoxville after a wonderful (but kinda rainy) vacay visiting friends & family up in Iowa & Minnesota. Back to good ol' Tennessee! And back to some delish recipes. 

This is one of those nothin' fancy but super good and super easy kinda recipes. It's great in a pinch when you need to throw something together for guests (or for a fiesta) or if you're starving and don't have dinner planned. We use this as a dip and a quesadilla filling. (both muy bueno.) You can adjust the cayenne depending on how muy caliente (ok, last lame spanish cliche) you like it. It's one of those easy dishes you can play around with...add cilantro if you're a fan, throw in some peppers...go loco! 
(wow, i must need a mexican vaycay.)
