Hi everyone, Memorial day is going to be here next weekend, so I thought I'd share my favorite Black bean dip recipe, and throw out a request for other favorites... Thanks! 1 can (16 ounce) cooked black beans, rinsed and drained 1 small ripe tomato 1/2 red bell pepper 1 small red onion 2 medium garlic cloves 3 tablespoons Hot sauce ( I use Cholula) 2 tablespoons minced cilantro (or to taste, I use tons) 1 cup grated Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese 2 tablespoons chopped scallion or cilantro In a blender of food processor combine the beans, tomato, bell pepper, onion, garlic, hot sauces, and cilantro. Process until smooth yet slightly chunky. Scoop bean puree into a saucepan and cook over low heat til hot, about 10 minutes. Stir in the cheese and cook til melted. Serve garnished with scallions, with tortilla chips or pita toasts. Serves 6.
