This is one of my favorite recipes from The Feast of Santa Fe.
Black Bean Dip
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 tsp cayenne (optional - we omit this)
1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
1/2 tsp ground cumin
Put all ingredients into food processor and process until smooth, leaving a little texture if desired. Top with salsa and chopped cilantro. Serve in quesadillas, burritos, tacos, or with chips.
Black beans are an excellent source of many nutrients including protein, fiber, folate, iron, magnesium, potassium, and more.
