Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    - 1 can Unico bean medley or similar mixed beans, rinsed and drained
    - 1 medium sized Haas avocado
    - 1/2 cup chopped red onion
    - 3 cloves garlic (vary according to personal preference)
    - 1 cups mild salsa
    - 2 dashes Tabasco sauce (or to taste)
    - 2 tbsp cumin
    - 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, washed, stems remove
    - 1/2 cup 0% fat greek yogourt
    - juice of 1 lime

Directions

Makes 8 generous servings of ~1/3 cup each.
Combine all ingredients in food processor and blend 1 minute or until consistency is uniform. If you don't have a food processor, use an immersion blender in short bursts to break up and mix dip.
Serve with tortilla chips and veggies (not included in nutritional analysis for this recipe) and garnish with cilantro.
If a richer, less tart version is desired, add 1/2 a cup of softened light cream cheese.
This recipe also makes a great sandwich spread if the salsa is drained of any excess liquid and the lime juice is halved or omitted, which gives the final product a thicker consistency.
