Directions

Drain and rinse black beans if using canned.
Place olive oil in skillet set over medium-high heat. Add onions, peppers, and garlic and saute about three minutes, until vegetables are fragrant and starting to brown slightly. Add cumin, stir well, reduce heat to medium and cook another two minutes.
Place beans in food processor and pulse several times. Add vegetable mixture and pulse a few more times. Add vegetable broth in small batches to thin the dip to the desired consistency. Garnish with chopped cilantro. Serve immediately or store in refrigerator for up to 10 days.

Makes 16 1/4-cup servings!

    Delicious, I used curry powder because I was out of cumin and it came out out of this world! I think this may be my new favorite dip for tortilla chips. - 4/12/09

    Nice flavor - makes a good filling for a burrito. Top with a little nonfat shredded cheese and heat. Serve with chopped lettuce and tomato. Makes a great lunch for under 300 calories. - 7/9/09

    I added 2 cloves of roasted garlic to the beans in the processor and switched out chopped green onions for the cilantro. Took it to work and only got 1 small tablespoon of it once everyone else tasted it! :-) Staff has now started buying the ingredients for me to make it and bring it in! - 7/9/09

    I added salsa (mild as that's the intensity I like) for added flavor and to thin instead of water or broth. I mixed it in by hand to keep the chunky consistancy. Thx for sharing such a veratile recipe. - 7/9/09

    Great recipe! I have made this many times but w/o the cilantro, green pepper, & broth. Instead, I fold in spicy salsa. I serve this on top of whatever mixed veggies I have cooked up, sprinkle 1/4 cup of reduced fat cheese on top and heat up/melt in microwave. Very satisfying meal. - 7/9/09

    Added 1 tsp of ground chipotle pepper to the recipe as well and this came out tremendous. I've made several times now substituting 1 can black and white not always using 2 cans black beans. Comes out great every time!!! - 7/9/09

    After reading the above comments, I made some changes (because I'm broke). I only used a bag of dried black beans (which yields 6 c.), black bean & corn salsa (1.5 c.), onion, garlic & cumin. It was amazing!! We ate it with tortillas, on turkey tacos, and even as just a bean & veggie wrap. Thanks!! - 10/14/09

    Lovely beans! I like to add chopped tomatoes, depending on how I'm serving it, as a dip or a filling. Spoonful on top of a salad composť (think "tossed salad only in layers and not tossed") is wonderful. Toasting cumin seeds dry and then grinding = Amazing & fragrant, worth the extra step. - 9/3/09

    this is really good - I cut the beans, onion and broth in half, but left the rest of the ingredients. I really liked it on a corn tortilla with a little cheese and salsa. - 7/9/09

    This hummus recipe is absolutely delicious. The texture is very much like a classic hummus, without having to buy expensive and hard-to-find tahini (sesame) paste. Thank you for posting the recipe! - 9/3/09

    SO good! I made a half batch, but doubled the grn pepper and didn't use the broth, just pulsed it a few more times to make the whole thing creamy. I added tomatoes and cheese and made burritos and they were great! This may be a new "go-to" recipe for appetizers and quick dinners. Thanks! - 8/4/09
