- 2 cups kidney beans (canned, low-sodium)
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 3/4 teaspoon chili powder

- 1 cup cheddar cheese (grated)
1. Drain the kidney beans, but save the liquid in a small bowl

3. Stir in the chopped onion and grated cheese.
4. Store in a tightly covered container and place in the fridge
5. Serve with raw vegetable sticks or crackers.
If you don’t have a blender, you can mix the first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl and mash with a fork. Then stir in the onion and cheese.
You can store this dip in the fridge for up to 4 or 5 days.
