Black Bean and Jalapeño Pepper Dip

This recipe may be used as a filling for celery sticks or a dip for raw vegetable pieces.


2-15 oz cans Black Beans, drained


4 cups Black Beans, cooked

1-6 oz can Tomato Paste

1 Sweet Onion, medium size, peeled

1-2 Jalapeño Pepper, stem removed*

1 tsp Sweet Basil, dried

1 tsp Cilantro, dried

2 tsp Chili Powder

2 tsp Cumin, ground

1 large or 2 medium size Garlic Cloves, peeled

6 tbsp Lemon Juice


- Put all of the ingredients in a high-speed blender container, cover, and blend until smooth. *(We suggest that the first time that you make this dip that you add only one jalapeño pepper, before tasting the dip; then if you want the dip "hotter", add the second pepper, and blend again.)

- If the dip is too thick for the desired use, add a little water and mix thoroughly.

- The left over black bean dip can be stored in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for two to three days.
