seventh recipe created by me: black bean and tomato dip

This recipe was created this morning on a whim.

I was going to make some more salsa to enjoy with my chips, but I had a can of black beans.

So I mixed the black beans drained, 2 roma tomatoes, cilantro, and minced garlic.

I tried it and decided something was missing, so I added a half a jalepeno pepper, like I do for salsa.

I don't normally include peppers in anything; I make an exception for salsa.

I could have added onion, but I didn't. Add it if you want.

This is essentially, my salsa without the onion, less tomato, and black beans.

Black bean and tomato dip!


  1. I prepare a similar dish with black beans, corn and tomatoes at work. I usually add diced onion, chopped cilantry, minced garlic and minced chilies along with a vinaigrette dressing. The addition of a vinegar (I usually use wine vin.) and oil will bring all the flavors together. Good luck.

  2. ooh, balsamic vinegar, good suggestion!
