Inspired by Cookin’ Canuck
15 oz. can black beans
1/2 cup salsa (I use roasted tomato with chipotle)
1/4 cup water
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 tsp. cumin
1/8 tsp. salt, more to taste
Optional: nutritional yeast, chipotle, cilantro, lime, jalapeno, cayenne, etc.
Rinse and drain black beans. Set aside about 1/2 cup of the beans.
Place remaining beans and all other ingredients in a blender or food processor.
Blend until it reaches desired texture*. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.
Place in a bowl and stir in the remaining black beans.
Garnish with cilantro, nutritional yeast, etc. if you wish. Great served warm, cold, or room temp!
*Note: If your blender isn’t great (ahem, ours) you may need to help it along, stirring with a spatula to get it going. You can also add a touch more water if needed.
