    Default Bean Dip?

    I'm looking for a good tnt bean dip recipe.
    Got some good refried beans (yeah, canned. they're good) and want to
    make bean dip out of some of them. Right now, I just put a few tbs of
    salsa in, and that's ok, but not great.
    What is your favorite bean dip recipe?

    Add 2-3Tb butter per can, salt and pepper, reheat, stir and ...
    Presto! Bean dip. It's as simple as that.

    Everything goes better with butter.

    Refried beans, minced jalapeno, or a little juice from the jar if you
    don't like it very hot. Add minced garlic and grated onion, or use
    powdered garlic and powdered onion.

    I rather like Refritos but my favorite dip is Mexican Hummus, made with
    canned Garbanzos, lime juice, cumin and some chopped cilantro. That's
    really all and it's low-fat but you can add a few drops of sesame oil if
    you like.

    I liked the (no longer available) Pace Refried Beans with Chorizo,
    with a bit of chopped green onion, shredded jack cheese, salsa, and
    sour cream mixed together and heated till the cheese melts.
    Tabasco or other hot sauce or cayenne can be added if you want it
    hotter. Garlic, too.

    This is one I often use, but I likke Becca's addition of jalapeño...

    1 can (16 oz) refried beans
    1/2 cup of your favorite salsa
    1 tbsp lime juice, raw
    1 tsp hot sauce (to taste)
    1 tsp chili powder
    1 tsp dried cilantro
    2 tsp ground cumin

    Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix well with a spoon. The dip will get
    nice and creamy.

    That sounds really good. I assume you puree the garbanzos in the FP?

    There's also water. Canned refried beans are not dippable without
    adding water. Pepper? Hmm? *
    >
    > Everything goes better with butter.


    For the most part that's true, but that's a lot of butter for one can
    of beans. Still, I'm going to try it using nice organic, fat-free
    canned beans (Full Circle), or better yet, fresh cooked beans..

    Certainly no vinegar based hot sauce nor the vinegar from pickled
    jalapenos. I use my garlic press and knife to make tiny amounts of
    jalapeno puree, and a tiny bit of fresh garlic might be nice. The
    tiniest sprinkle of MSG?

    There's also bean/cheese dip, where some cheese is melted/beaten in
    (jack, mild cheddar).

    I don't know why folks feel the need to form a slop. Salsa? Fine.
    Put it in a separate bowl.

    Not looking at the recipe and haven't made this in years... take a can
    of refried beans, a can of vegetarian chili, some cheese, salsa,
    chopped green onions (well - if the original recipe didn't call for
    them, I'd put them in now). Add a little chili powder if you want to
    give it another layer of flavor. Heat gently to mix and meld - then
    scoop the goop with tortilla chips. If you're interested, I can look
    to see if I still have a recipe but I doubt it. In any case, you can
    wing it from the general description.

    It is if you apply heat.

    No, there isn't.

    What do you think the effect of adding 2-3 TB of butter heating ,
    and stirring would be?

    The beans I use don't have any fat. Usually refried beans are
    loaded with lard. All I'm doing is substituting butter for the
    lard. They are creamy and delicious.

    Fro there you can add whatever you like. Japs, onion, cumin,
    sriracha, etc... Just try the basics first.

    And yes, I recommend about 2.5TB. That's nothing compared to how
    much lard some recipes/restaurants use.

    I've always found that canned ref beans are too stiff at room temp to
    be dippable. The butter would surely help, but when using peanut oil
    or lard, I always have to add water, especially since I always simmer
    them a bit. Seems to cook off some of the canned taste.

    Hey, I wrote that I was going to try it. I didn't say that I'd try
    it, but with half the butter. It could become my new method.

    Yes, exactly. It might be necessary to add a little extra water or
    liquid from the can to get the right consistency. I might use crisp
    tacos or well toasted pita to pick it up.


    Here's the recipe, tho' it's fairly obvious.
    Recipe 1

    (Peter Brooks)

    1 can chickpeas (14 fl oz) drained
    2 tab lemon juice
    1 clove garlic (maybe more roasted)
    2 tab chopped Coriander (or other herbs, like Parsley or cumin) to
    taste
    2 drops sesame oil

    Throw all into a food processor, and whirl until you get a paste of the
    desired consistency. A blender will work but you have to keep pushing
    the mix down. Brooks usually rinses the canned beans to get rid of the
    extra salt. Depending on how well it's been drained, you might need to
    add a couple extra tabs of water. Some people use chicken broth,
    non-fat mayo, tabasco. I wonder if fat substitute (apple sauce) might
    work.

    Recipe 1A

    Another variant is to use the juice of 1 or ½ of a lime. The drained
    liquid seems fine as a liquefier and the suggestion comes from my
    daughter Kathy who was enthusiastic about the Mexican use of lime.

    Room temperature doesn't work, that's why I have a microwave. If room
    temperature is the plan, yes, they need thinning. I like using salsa.
