Last night I had the great pleasure of attending the Dirty Dancing 25th Anniversary Celebration, hosted by Skinny Cow! I can hardly believe that it’s been 25 years since the moving came out – I still remember watching it as a kid (which, when I look back at it now, was probably highly inappropriate). I didn’t understand everything 100% but still loved the dancing and had a major crush on Johnny Castle.
They transformed a whole theater into all things Dirty Dancing and Skinny Cow:
Today’s giveaway is in honor of Cinco de Mayo, and it is a quick one (ending tomorrow night!) so make sure you get those entries in! The prize is a Cinco de Mayo prize pack – a margarita maker, margarita glasses, and Heluva Good! Black Bean Queso Dip. Yay!
Now here’s the thing about my relationship with beans – it is a relatively newfound one. Up until a few years ago, I was not a bean fan AT ALL. However, I knew they were versatile, nutritious and filling, so I was determined to like them. I tried them in soup, dip, salads, the works. I finally realized that I needed to find the right type of bean – and for me, that was black beans. Deeelish. Whenever I eat black beans, they are invariably found in a Mexican or Tex-Mex dish, which is a choice cuisine for me. Mmm.
SO, when Heluva Good! sent me over some bean dip to review, I was really excited for several reasons – 1. It features my favorite type of bean. 2. It is sour cream based (‘Nuff said) 3. Food being delivered to my door – yes, please! I unpacked the dip as fast as my hot little hands would allow, and dunked in tortilla chip. And the dip was great! Creamy, tangy, cheesy and beany – I was sold.
But don’t take MY word for it - enter to win a prize pack for yourself, courtesy of Heluva Good!
