This is the ultimate Mexican dip. You have all the dips in one! I served this at a cocktail party and people picked the dish with this dip and put it on one of the tables so they can have easier access. The next day we went to an Irish pub and when the waitress asked what we would like to order, my friends said "Do you have Joy's dip?" I am making this again and again! I also used red kidney beans because I couldn't find the black beans at my supermarket. I served with crudites, tortilla chips and breadsticks.
