Hey your site looks pretty yummy, and since I am from Texas I have to make this for one of our entertaining parties…I used to make more Tex Mex and south american dishes, but go back and forth with seasonal ingredients! Thanks for stopping by!

wow, your blog is great…it all looks wonderful. thanks for stopping by mine.

Funny enough, I’m planning a white bean dip that is very similar to this. Asked my husband to buy the beans tomorrow…

But much of the stuff on this blog is quite new to me…what a delight!

Thanks for passing from my blog and I will be looking forward to exploring your blog and learning more about Colombian cuisine, which I must admit, I know very little. Your dip sounds amazing.

That looks great! I’ve made dips with black beans, garbanzo beans and white beans, but never kidney beans: great idea.
