But I digress. Here's the recipe, complete with pictures! Although if there's one recipe pictures don't do justice to (or any good for that matter) it's this, because it basically just looks like poop.
I'm calling this Judy's Black Bean Dip, because my mom discovered it while she was on a Daniel Fast and I would often show up for lunch at her house (uninvited) in case she happened to have some in the fridge.
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp cumin
3 cups of black beans, rinsed (28 oz can)
3/4 cup salsa
Shredded chedder cheese (my mom subbed in nutritional yeast since she was off dairy, so I did the same)
Sea salt to taste (1/2 tsp to start. I ended up using about 1 tsp)
Pepper to taste
Saute onion and garlic in a little water until tender.
Mash about half of the beans and add to the pan.
Add cumin, salt and pepper.
Stir in the salsa
Stir in shredded cheese. Or, you can use nutritional yeast which looks like fish food but tastes kind of like cheese and cuts down on calories.
Serve warm. Eat with corn chips!
