Black Bean Dip

If you choose to keep your party appetizers simple, this black bean dip is a good choice. The vinegar and spices make this bean dip special, and the flavor takes people pleasantly by surprise. Of course, if the balsamic is too much, adjust it to your taste. From David Bulla's article on party appetizers.
Ingredients:
  • 1 15 oz. can Black Beans
  • 4 cloves Garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1 teaspoon Ground cumin or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons Chili powder
  • ¼ cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
Preparation:
  1. Simply put all the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Some canned beans have more liquid than others, so you may have to add more vinegar to make the consistency right, but don't use more than a cup of vinegar.
  2. Serve as a dip for veggies, corn or flour tortilla chips, pita chips, etc.
  3. Use as a second or third dip so that those people afraid of beans will have alternatives for their veggies. Ranch or spinach dips always seem to be popular.
  4. Makes 2 cups.

Total time: 30 Min
