Smoky Chipotle and Black Bean Dip

Submitted by Courtney

This is a bean dip recipe, and it is certainly flavorful! In fact, it was way too spicy for my mild tastes, so now I just leave the chipotle out.

1/3 cup green onion, thinly sliced
2 t. garlic, minced
2 t. cumin
1 – 15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro
2 T. lime juice
1 T. freshly chopped oregano
1 t. chipotle chiles in adobo, pureed
1/4 t. salt

In a small non-stick skillet, sauté the green onions and garlic for 3-4 minutes or until softened. Add the cumin, sauté 3 additional minutes or until fragrant, remove from heat, and set aside. In a food processor or blender, combine the green onion mixture and the remaining ingredients, and puree until smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, you can also add more chipotle puree if you like spicy flavors. Serve with tortilla chips, crackers, or veggies.
