I have always been a fan of textural differences within any recipe. Queso fundido, creamy molten cheese, often houses little morsels of sautéed peppers and onion with a wisp of heat from chiles. But this version folds in black beans and tomatoes for a deeper contrast not only of texture, but of color as well. The habanero breathes fire, and also perfumes the creamy concoction for one obsessive dip. Serve the dip warm and bubbly with Potato Tortillas or a heaping portion of Ultimate French Fries.
