This Black Bean Dip is a lot like hummus, although true hummus is made with chickpeas. Serve this dip cold for a refreshing appetizer. It also makes a nutritious snack.
BLACK BEAN DIP
(makes about 2 cups)
1 Tbsp. canned chopped green chilies
1 small onion, chopped (about 1/4 cup)
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 (15 oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 c. plain fat-free yogurt
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. salt
Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Cover and blend on medium-high speed, pulsing occasionally, until almost smooth. Pour the dip into a small bowl. Serve with pita chips or pieces of flatbread.
NOTE: Serve this dip cold or heat it in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes, until hot.
