Can't find the Black Bean Dip Recipe, help!

  • r

I'm 99% certain that this black bean dip recipe came from chowhound. It was black beans, onion, lime juice, chipotles in adobe sauce, and a few other things. If anyone has this recipe or one like it, please post it!

  1. Why, surely you mean Goodhealthgourmet's Healthy Black Bean Dip, well-loved by all who taste it...it's so great! Here's a copy and paste of it...enjoy!

    GHG'S HEALTHY & HEARTY SMOKY BLACK BEAN DIP

    1 19-oz can black beans, drained & rinsed
    2 large garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
    2 Tbsp.coarsely chopped onion
    ½ cup loosely packed fresh cilantro [leaves & stems]
    1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
    2 Tbsp. low- or nonfat sour cream or yogurt
    1-2 chipotle chiles in adobo, coarsely chopped [amount depends on heat preference]
    1 tsp. ground cumin
    ½ tsp. red chili powder
    ½ tsp. smoked paprika [pimentón de la vera]
    salt and freshly ground pepper

    in a food processor, combine all ingredients except salt & pepper. process until smooth. taste for seasoning, add salt & pepper to taste, and blend thoroughly. if you prefer a thinner dip continue processing and add water 1 Tbsp. at a time until desired consistency is reached.

    transfer to a serving bowl, garnish with 2 Tbsp. of chopped cilantro if desired, and serve with homemade chips [see below], and/or crudités.

    a couple of notes:

    re: consistency...i like my dips VERY thick, so depending on your preference you'll probably want to add some water to loosen it up a bit

    re: heat...i love it, so i always go heavy on the pepper & chiles...but if you're not into spicy, start off with just a little. you can always add more.

        heh...reading this thread made me crave this dip again....I made it and then made nachos using these: http://www.foodshouldtastegood.com/#/...

        Topped with a little sharp cheddar and fresh cilantro with slices of ripe plum tomatoes all around the edge of the plate (I'm in Florida) and it made a really delicious and beautiful lunch, which I shared with co-workers. Those chips are so pretty and taste so good!

        Just wanted to bring this thread back to the top for any new chowhounders. Just made this dip again today and it never disappoints. One of the few recipes that you can follow exactly with no modification needed. Nice healthy choice to bring to the inevitable parties this time of year.

        I've found it gets even better if you let it sit a few hours.

        1. re: Val

          how soon will I get to the market I ask? question-no rock tossing please-can I opt out of black beans & sub a canned bean I do like?

            GHG has posted a white bean dip recipe, too, if you want to poke around for it.

              I believe GHG's bean dip recipe is quite versatile for any bean you'd rather use!

            2. Here is one I've used for years:

              1 TSP GROUND CUMIN

              1/4 CUP CILANTRO
              1 TBS LIME JUICE

                This one looks very tasty too...I'll have to try it out. Sure has a LOT of chilies with the chipotles, serranos AND what's in the Rotel! Thanks!

              2. Along these same lines - I was recently reading a thread about dips and someone posted a recipe for a spicy artichoke dip they make. Now I can't find the thread or the recipe. Anyone? Bueller?
