Save this Bean Dip recipe for those hangry weeknights when nothing sounds good. It's easy, satisfying, and dee-licious -- the perfect way to to spice up your kitchen routine when it needs it most! Here's how to make it...
You can be eating in about 15 minutes here so lets get going... Start by cooking 1/2 onion and 2 peeled garlic cloves in some oil over medium heat. It's okay to roughly chop the onion and leave the garlic cloves whole as all of this will be blended together eventually.
Once the onion is starting to brown we'll add: 1 can beans, drained and rinsed (black or pinto) 1-2 chipotles in adobo 1 roma tomato, roughly chopped 1/2 teaspoon cumin 1/2 teaspoon salt freshly cracked black pepper 1/2 cup water (or stock)
Bring this mixture up to temp and then add 1 cup shredded cheese. I typically use Jack cheese but feel free to use what you have available. Once the cheese is mostly melted you can add all of this to a blender.
Combine well and take a taste. Yum!! I usually use 2 chipotles and that will make your Bean Dip fiery! For a milder version start with a single chipotle (or half) and taste test from there. To increase the heat simply add another sliver of chipotle, combine, and taste again.
And now the fun part! You can serve up this dip however you see fit -- it's quite satisfying even next to a bowl of chips. But what turns it into a meal for me is dipping some cheesy, crispy corn tortillas in it.
Start by adding 4 corn tortillas to a wide skillet over medium heat, then adding some cheese. These will be folded in half eventually so I usually add the fixings to just one side of the tortillas.
For this batch I added some thinly sliced tomato, but the insides of these crispy tortillas usually depends on what's in the fridge. So feel free to get creative with these! If you're hungry try to add some fat to them, like avocado bits.
Once these are nice and crispy you can serve them next to your epic Bean Dip. It's an ultra satisfying combo and will quickly take care of the hangry. Click the 'Get the recipe!' button below to see the full instructions. Enjoy!!
