The pinto bean used to be considered the king for bean dips, but black beans have been gaining popularity lately. Once you taste our Black Bean Dip, you'll see why!

What You'll Need

  • 2 (16-ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained, divided
  • 1 (8-ounce) jar picante sauce, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 medium-sized onion, finely chopped
  • 1 medium-sized red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon dried cilantro
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 medium-sized tomato, chopped

What to Do

  1. In a blender or a food processor, combine 1 can of beans and 1/4 cup picante sauce; blend or process until smooth.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat and saute onion, pepper, and garlic 5 to 7 minutes, or until onion is tender. Add pureed bean mixture, the cumin, cilantro, salt, and remaining whole beans and picante sauce; mix well. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Pour dip into a shallow serving dish and top with cheese and tomato.

Haven't tried this yet but I think it might benefit from a hit of hot sauce. Just my preference..I like spicy!

I have never had a problem getting to Mr. Food or going to various recipes. The problem is not with Mr. Food, suggest you get someone to look at your computer.

I've NEVER had a problem with this website. It is very user friendly and I love using the recipe box, so easy and convenient way to store my favorite recipes for future printing out. Thanks Mr. Food' s Kitchen

This is the most frustrating site to try to get on. You are always directed everywhere but where you want to go and the popups are most annoying. I love Mr. Food, but this site is extremely frustrating. PLEASE FIX IT!!!

I agree with lady
