After a link mix-up, I discovered that Amy from Amy's Cooking Adventures was my actual assigned blog. Like myself, she is a stay-at-home Mom with two little ones cooking and experimenting in the kitchen for her family. I found a few recipes I wanted to make from her site, but with trying to post this quickly and finding that my two boxes of potatoes had turned up missing, I couldn't go with my first choice of her Loaded Baked Potato Soup. I will be making that one soon!
Then I found this wonderful recipe for Black Bean Dip. Mmm... healthy, simple and delicious!
This was adapted from Annie's Eats, another blog I love.
You Will Need:
- 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
- ½ tsp cumin
- ¼ tsp smoked paprika*
- ¼ tsp cayenne
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp. onion powder*
- 4 tbsp chicken stock*
*donates a slight change, addition or amount change from the original for preference
Combine the black beans, cumin, paprika, cayenne, and salt in a small food processor. I used my Blendtec here. I really hate cleaning all the parts of my food processor, but either will work.
Pulse into a chunky paste. I love having some lumps of beans visible.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the chicken stock and pulse to combine. Taste and add more seasoning as needed.
