Carnivale Bean Dip

Carnivale Bean Dip


This inflation-proof recipe is fantastic! I got it from a neighbor during a holiday "progressive dinner" type affair. I was drawn to the bowl because it was so colorful. It was served with corn chips that are shaped like little bowls. Perfect!

@oke214 4916813: Thanks for your user comment. I have corrected the above recipe. - RecipeLion Editors

Please check your spelling when you are sending out a publication on-line. We, as English teachers, have been working to improve standards. When a person using a program that has access to spell check, and then chooses not to use it; this person only supports poor English spelling habits. The spelling is "favorite" not "favirite", as you printed in Instructions, step 5. You also need to proofread your sentence structure, as in "I was drawn to the bowl because it was so colorful, and it was served it with corn chips that are shaped like little bowls." Are you able to find the error in this sentence? I am glad that you supplied an interesting recipe, but please be more careful in the future. It only diminishes you and your recipe.
