Black Bean Dip

Benjamin’s birthday party was yesterday, and I made a few dips for the adults. I tried a new one, a black bean dip, and it was delicious. I started with the original recipe from She Wears Many Hats and made a few adjustments. It simply wasn’t flavorful enough, but the base components were there!

Black Bean Dip

2 – 15 oz cans black beans, slightly drained
1 – 8 oz can tomato sauce
¼ tsp cumin (I used ½ – ¾ tsp)
¼ tsp paprika
¼ tsp salt (I used ½ tsp)
¼ tsp pepper (I used 1 tsp)
1 C cheddar cheese

The following addition was made by Mark. I think it worked out perfectly!
6-7 splashes hot sauce (I use Crystal)

Over medium heat warm beans until they begin to simmer. Mash beans (we used our immersion blender). Add tomato sauce, spices and stir. Add cheese and mix well.

We served this after it had slightly cooled in the refrigerator and it was delicious. We ate the rest today (cold from the fridge) and it was even better! Next time I’ll definitely make it ahead of time and let all of the spices meld overnight in the fridge!
