  • 1 can black beans or refried beans (15 oz)
  • 1/2 cup roasted salsa verde
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (start with one then add another to taste)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1-2 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • a pinch of salt to taste
  • tortilla chips and veggie sticks for dipping



  1. Combine black beans, green salsa, garlic, lime juice, cumin and salt in a food processor.
  2. Next add one chipotle pepper and puree.
  3. Taste test for heat, then add the additional chipotle pepper if you're in the mood for a kick, then blend again.
  4. You can even sneak in a little cayenne if you feel like kicking things up a few more notches. Have at it! Make this dip as spicy or as mild as you'd like!
  5. Heat a small saucepan to medium heat and warm up the dip. Alternatively the microwave can be used if desired.
  6. While the dip warms, chop pico de gallo ingredients and combine.
  7. Serve over warm dip with an assortment of tortilla chips and veggies.
