Best Black Bean Dip EVAHHHHHH

See that title? If I was reading it to you, I would totally yell the "evahhhh!" part because it's that GOOD. "Holy Moses is it delicious" as my Nan Cresswell would say. I mean, it's so good you should go out and buy some black beans right now, unless you're like me and always get sucked in to Heinen's 10 for $10 on cans of beans and now have thousands of legumes squirreled away.

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!

  1. Number one: I thought that 'EVAHHHHHH' was you saying a drawn out version of the girl's name 'Eva' and I just couldn't figure out why in the world you'd use that as an expression...

    Number two: the pic of the sauteed onions and garlic looks nasty and I thought it was the finished pic of your black bean dip and I was like, why would anyone want to try something that looked like that, but then I saw the rest of the pics and the dip actually looks good...

  2. How much nutritional yeast should I put in?
