Do you love football season and the dip-worthy parties that it brings? BooMama is hosting DipTacular right now. Grab your crackers and chips, and head over HERE to find TONS of dip recipes.

My favorite dip is simple and easy to make with things that you can keep in your pantry.

Black Bean Dip

2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 can corn, drained

Just mix it all up and add whatever seasonings you like. I keep it simple and just throw in some diced green onions. The last time I made it, I had some leftover salsa in the fridge, so I added that too. This is a very fresh-tasting dip, and it works well with the scoop-type chips.

If you have a favorite dip recipe to share, stop by DipTacular hosted by BooMama.
