Black Bean Spread with Lime and Cilantro

Black Bean Spread with Lime and Cilantro

Fresh lime juice and cilantro dress up canned black beans for a simple, delicious appetizer. The liquid from one of the cans of beans is used to thin the spread to a nice consistency. Serve with baked tortilla chips, and use any remaining spread in quesadillas or burritos.
