Black Bean Dip: Attempt 1

A lot of recipes take time to develop, or you have to make them a few times till the balance is there. This is attempt 1 of a black bean dip that I can serve at parties this fall. Its not quite there yet, but I have ideas on how to get this dip the rest of the way there. For instance, I am thinking of adding another egg, maybe some cream cheese, perhaps hot sauce, upping the spice amounts, or maybe more hot peppers. There is a lot of variation I can do to this recipe, but it is a pretty good base at the moment. With this recipe, feel free to experiment and adapt from this base.
