Black Bean Quick Dip

Black Bean Quick Dip

Ingredients:-2 16oz cans black beans (drain and rinse one, reserve the liquid from the other) 1 medium red onion, chopped ½ cup cilantro, chopped 3 garlic cloves, chopped 2 Tbsp fresh lime or orange juice (Or a combo. These juices work better with black beans than lemon) Zest from the lime you juiced 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar 1 Tbsp olive oil 1 Tbsp cumin 2 Tbsp taco seasoning (Or ask me how to get a bottle of my World Famous Chili Powder. Homemade chili powder does make a huge difference) Salt and pepper to taste 1 jalapeño, chopped (if desired)

Procedures:-This is another guaranteed crowd pleaser. It’s great at Christmas parties or the campsite with your favorite corn or flour tortilla chips. I also really like a good fresh vegetable platter with it. You can get black bean dip from the store, sure. But believe me, you won’t find one like this… Preparation In a blender or food processor, purée the beans, red onion, vinegar, orange/lime juice, lime zest, cilantro, oil, garlic, and cumin. Add the pepper and salt (sea salt if you have it) and pulse 3 to 5 times. An optional ingredient is 1 diced tomato. It goes well with the citrus and chili powder.
