Ok, this is a quickie, no garnishes and poor photography. Would really benefit from a spring onion or chive garnish on the dip itself. Made the black bean dip really fast this morning.

Black Bean Dip

I didn’t measure unfortunately because I was in a hurry. I just kept adding spices until it was yummy. Here’s approximately what I did:

  • 1 large can of black beans
  • 2 glops of minced garlic from a jar
  • about a T. powdered onion
  • about 1 t. ground fennel
  • about 1 t. cumin
  • dribbles of jalapeno hot sauce until it was spicy enough
  • no more than 1 t. liquid smoke
  • salt

All that in a food processor and process while chopping veggie scoopers. Taste and adjust salt, hot sauce and liquid smoke. Go easy on the liquid smoke, it can get too smoky tasting.
