I tested this one out yesterday…often I try something at least twice before I share it with you, but this was too good to keep to myself!
I love tortilla chips and dip…the problem is the mayo-based cheese dip that I love, but my body does not…
Here is a new way for me to enjoy my fave…I bet you will too!
Black Bean Dip
1 clove garlic, minced
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 green onion
1 small tomato
1/3 red or yellow pepper
juice of 1 lime
1tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp crushed chillies or 1/2 jalapeno
1-2 tbsp cilantro very finely chopped
In a chopper (like a Tupperware Quickchef) or food processor, add all ingredients and chop/process until the consistency that you like ( I like mine a little chunky…not too mushy.) That’s it–easy and so good for you!!!
Let sit at least 20 minutes, and eat with tortilla chips.
Post Script, January 22, 2013. Try topping your bean dip with shredded cheese (like marble or monteray jack) and baking it at 350 degrees until hot (about 15 min or so)–heaven!
