Black Bean Dip - The Secret Recipe Club

After a little mix-up Monday, ...I should add a very delicious mix-up, I am back with another recipe from The Secret Recipe Club!

Secret Recipe Club

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.
