Ingredients
  

Bean Mixture

  • 1 can black beans drained (19 oz. / 540 mL)
  • 1 can kidney beans drained (19 oz. / 540 mL)
  • ½ cup white onion finely chopped
  • ¾ cup tomato salsa
  • 3 tbsp jalapeno pepper finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp cilantro chopped
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • ½ tsp garlic salt

Topping

  • 2 cups Monterey Jack or medium Cheddar cheese grated
  • 1 tsp chili powder

Instructions
 

  • In a large mixing bowl, mash the kidney beans.
  • Mix in the remaining bean mixture ingredients and spread evenly in a large, greased pie plate or shallow casserole dish.
  • Cover with the cheese topping and bake uncovered at 375°F for 30 minutes.
  • Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before serving with tortilla chips.

Notes

I use a mild salsa then increase the spiciness with the jalapeno pepper. Using about 3 tbsp of jalapeno including its seeds will make this dip medium spicy. Adjust the quantity to your own taste.
