Bean & Corn Cheese Dip

Looking for party favorite appetizer or a cold winter evening treat ? Try this cheesy dip with black beans and corn . It has been extremely cold this winter in California, most of the holiday season we have been snuggly at home, cooking all our favorites, meeting up with family and friends over lunch/dinner. This gooey cheesy bean and corn dip flavored with the spice of jalapeños was a SUPER hit at my christmas potluck.
