AMARILLO, Texas - Mahjong. An opportunity to entertain, host, share, and enjoy, inviting friends over for games, conversation, and togetherness. And nothing else bonds this all together like the tradition of breaking bread, the dividing of our plenty with others. Especially in the United States, the tradition of food and drink over a game of tiles is most cherished, and Mahjong News introduces its newest column Mahjong Morsels: recipes to share with friends.

Sometimes the food over mahjong is a full blown banquet feast, and other times, it's simple chips poured from the bag into a bowl. Today's recipe falls somewhere in the middle of the table, being a great finger-food friends can share from a tray, which doesn't require the plate and silverware compete with the tiles for space on the tablea delicious recipe with Tex-Mex roots, the bean dip. Tex-Mex dishes derive their origins from the fusion of cultures along the Texas-Mexico border, incorporating Southern American style (itself influenced by Czech and German ancestry) with the flare and spice of Northern Mexico, the combination creating a unique culture in its own right more colorfully known as Tejano. Wendy Miller, my sister-in-law and award-winning culinary aficionado, shares her appetizing recipe for Tex-Mex bean dip.
