Black Bean Margarita hummus

I threw this together for a snack today, to hold us over until the late dinner we have planned with a friend. My hubby gave it his highest praise possible ("this is f***ing awesome," said with mouth full).

  • 1 can black beans drained and rinsed
  • ~1 Tablespoon oil (we used olive)
  • ~2 Tablespoons margarita mix (or lime juice with a pinch of sugar dissolved in in it)
  • 3 shakes of cumin
  • 2 shakes of chili powder
  • ~1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • A bunch of fresh ground black pepper
  • A fair amount of salt

Mash it all up with a fork or potato masher until smooth or whirl it in a food processor. We had ours with tortilla chips. And I'm betting that some diced hot peppers and cilantro would make a nice addition.

Hi Katy,

I replied to your comment on my blog post about leaving Seattle. Thanks for your comment.

I see you're in Boulder. I visited once and loved the city. VG BURGERS!
