Chunky Pinto Bean Dip
If you like things hot - leave the seeds in the jalapeno peppers.

Yield: 1 1/4 cups (serving size: 1 tablespoon)

1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup  minced onion 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 jalapeño pepper, seeded  and minced fine
1/2 cup finely chopped plum tomato  *

Place bean mixture in a bowl. Mash beans until mushy, leaving chunks. Add onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt and jalapeno. Stir in chopped tomato. Serve with baked tortilla chips.

* Was out of tomatoes one day and tried red bell pepper in it's place.  This was also super good.
