Sinister Salsa: Guacamole with Black Beans

Is that pebbly sludge, dredged up from a nearby swamp, or creamy guacamole studded with black beans and minced chiles? Only a bite -- or two -- will reveal the true tastiness in the bowl. Dark-blue corn tortilla chips are a must for dipping; they also work well with the green-and-black party palette.
