Simple Bean Spread

Yes, this is another bean spread recipe.  As you all know…I love my beans not only for their delicious taste but because they are packed with fiber!  In this recipe, I used re-fried beans, which have a nice smooth consistency – perfect for a dip or a spread.   I enjoyed this bean spread with whole grain chips and veggies alongside salsa, Greek yogurt and guacamole.
