Crack, a.k.a. Bean Dip Recipe

So you are going to a million and one holiday gatherings and have no idea what to bring with you. What about this bean dip recipe? I call it crack because once you start eating it you will not be content to stop until it is all gone.

You will want to make it every day. But alas you can not unless you would like to invest in a new wardrobe consisting primarily of elastic waist pants. Susan would not like that.

Every time I have made this and brought it to a party it has been gone in a matter of moments. I gave the recipe to my friend Heather awhile back and she brought it to a party where one partygoer was so impatient for more he grabbed a measuring cup to eat it with. That information simultaneously pleased me and made me recoil in horror.
