Awhile ago I made Sweet & Spicy Black Bean Dip. Then… my blender broke (wonder why) and I created Really Quick Spicy Bean Dip while declaring my love of the dip that is made with beans. :)
Well now I’m at it again! Using my new food processor I took my hand at a new Black Bean dip idea. I don’t want to pat myself on the back or anything but this blows my last 2 attempts out of the water! The dip was super smooth, fresh tasting, sweet with a small kick. I think I actually like this better the Trader Joe’s jarred stuff I’m always raving about. Honestly, I really love that stuff.
I’m not sure this will work in a blender the same way but the food processor really did the trick. The only thing I’ll do different next time is to blend the raw peppers through the processor first before adding the beans. I had to stop and stir them a bit to get processed when I added them on top.
- 1 can black beans drained and rinsed
- 1 tbsp honey (21g)
- 2 tbsp tomato paste (1oz)
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1/2 green bell pepper
- 6 jarred jalapeno pepper slices to taste (could use fresh I just keep a jar in stock)
Place all ingredients in the food processor (you may want to process the peppers first) and blend until smooth, 2-3 minutes.
Seriously, it’s that easy. :)
Now onto the nutritional information. Before I post it I have to say this is SUPER filling and awesome with carrots sticks. Really… awesome.
I’m calculating based on my eyeball separation into 3 servings, each about 1/2 cup, maybe more. Just separate it into 3 containers and you’ll be fine.
