1 - 6-oz. can Tomato Paste

Open the cans of kidney beans and tomato paste.  Pour off the liquid from the beans, and place the beans in the container of a high speed blender.  Add the tomato paste.

Peel the onion and garlic; cut the onion into chunks, and add the onion and garlic to the blender container.

Add the other ingredients to the blender container (chipotle peppers may vary in spiciness, so we suggest that it is best to start with 1/2 and taste the dip before adding the other half).

Put the cover on the blender container, and run the blender at high speed until all the ingredients are smooth. 

If the dip is thicker than desired, add a little cold water and remix until the dip is at the desired consistency.

Serve and enjoy!

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
