Fresh cilantro, bright lime juice and smokey chipotle pepper in adobo give this healthy black bean dip delicious flavor.
15 oz can black beans - drained and rinsed
1 cup fresh cilantro - roughly chopped
1 cup salsa
Juice of one lime
2 chipotle peppers in adobo
2 garlic cloves
1 Tbsp Cumin
1 Tbsp Smoked Paprika
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Place all ingredients in a food processor or high speed blender and puree until smooth.
2. Check for seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste.
Dips can be made several days in advance and will taste better as it ages. Great for entertaining or healthy snacking throughout the week. To lessen the heat, remove the seeds from the chipotle peppers.
