mz *lizzie's Mexican Dip

When I received this recipe from a friend, it was titled simply "Dip". So, after approval at the staff meeting at work, it's now...

mz *lizzie's Mexican Dip

1 can black beans (drained and rinsed
1 can mexi-corn
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 bunch green onions-sliced thin, including green
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or to taste)

Stir together, chill, then enjoy with chips or crackers.

I used cheddar, but I'll bet this would be fantastic with one of the Mexican blends of shredded cheese. The original recipe called for a pinch of salt, but I didn't find it necessary. Nor did the original have the white pepper, but I like the added note of flavor when mixed with the cayenne.

Wrap some of this dip up in a flour tortilla or a crispy lettuce leaf  for a great snack! 

Yummy, yummy dip!
