Just A Touch of Spice Black Bean Dip

February 3, 2014

Author Notes: I had already learned a simple black bean dip recipe from a friend some time ago (not sure where she found it, so sorry if I can't properly credit you!), but I wanted to experiment with a little spice to it. You can add even a little more if you want a bit more kick.Rachel Ayn Pickens

Directions

  1. Rinse and drain black beans.
  2. Peel and finely chop garlic (it should be one large head or two smaller heads)
  3. Add beans, garlic, and other ingredients to blender. Blend on high for about 50 seconds or until smooth.
  4. Taste and add more cumin, chili, salt, or pepper as to your taste.
  5. Chill until ready to serve. I enjoy it with multi-grain crackers, but it would be great with veggies or chips as well!
