Warm Black Bean Dip

I forgot to take a picture before serving this recipe. However, it turned out to be so delicious, that others told me I needed to post it on the blog. In order to do that, I need a picture! Sorry it's of a dirty plate, but there was only one bite left. We'll definitely be having it again, so someday there will be a prettier picture. Warm Black Bean Dip

1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup diced fresh tomato
1/3 cup picante sauce/salsa
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese or Mexican blend cheese
(1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro or parsley) - we don't like cilantro, so we omitted this
1 tablespoon lime juice

Saute onion and garlic in oil until tender. Add the beans; mash gently. Stir in the tomato, salsa, cumin and chili powder and cook just until heated through. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Serve warm with tortilla chips.
