I really have been on a chili kick these last few days.  I needed something to take to book club on a snowy, icy night, so I decided to create a chili cheese dip.  I liked it so much that I also ate it for breakfast the next day.  HEY!  Leave me alone!  It’s full of protein!  🙂

Vegetarian Chili Cheese Dip

1 cup cooked lentils

1 cup cooked black beans

homemade taco seasoning

6 oz cream cheese

1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese

3 or 4 dashes of tabasco (or to taste)

1/2 cup salsa

Combine all ingredients in a pot and simmer over the stove.  Add taco seasoning to taste until it’s as seasoned and spicy just as you like it.  Serve with tortilla chips.
