I eat a lot of hummus. Roasted red pepper is my favorite, but I also love garlic... and pine nut. But I wanted to try making something a little different.... So I made some black bean dip. Turned out pretty stinkin good -- similar texture to hummus.... High in fiber, low in calories - I'd consider that a win. I had mine with some Broccoli this afternoon - and you can see my boyfriend's dog there waiting patiently (she LOVES broccoli!)
2/3 cup black beans (drained & rinsed)
2tbsp salsa - I used black bean & corn
cumin - to taste
red pepper - to taste
kernel season's ranch popcorn seasoning - optional
Combine all ingredients in food processor - until smooth. Eat with your favorite vegetables, and I'm sure it'd be great with tortilla chips as well!
Makes two servings.
