I’m originally from New Mexico and I get home stick for my hometown every year around this time. I miss the smell of green chile roasting in the air and the view of hot air balloons dotting the sky. Most of all, I just miss my family…and my mom’s spicy cooking! There’s no place like home and home cooking.
The best cure for my homesickness is spending time in the kitchen. I spent many, many hours in the kitchen with my grandma and mom growing up. Their version of cooking is “a pinch of this” and “a pinch of that”, never bothering with recipes. I’m still trying to get them to write down their infamous recipes for me, but in the meantime I’ve come up with a few of my own.
If you like spicy, this black bean dip recipe is for you! We’re adding La Morena jalapeños and chipotle peppers to black beans, giving this dip quite the spicy kick! Don’t worry, I give instructions for a mild spicy too. This is a recipe I love making for family gatherings. Enjoy!
15.5 oz Can of Black Beans
1/4 Cup La Morena Sliced Jalapeños
1/4 Cup La Morena Chipotle Peppers
1/3 Cup Sliced Green Onions
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper
Lime Juice from 1 Lime
INSTRUCTIONS: Head to the Hispanic aisle at Walmart at get the La Morena products. I love how La Morena adds an authentic Latino flavor to traditional Hispanic appetizers and dishes.
Place black beans, sliced jalapeños, chipotle peppers, green onions, garlic powder, salt, pepper and lime juice to a blender or food processor.
To adjust the level of spiciness, you can add more or less jalapeños and chipotle peppers. The more you put, the spicier the dip will be. For a more mild spicy, I recommend cutting the amount of jalapeños and peppers in half. Double the amounts for a mouth on fire kind of dip.
Blend until smooth or if you have a dip setting on your blender, use that. Eat with chips and enjoy!
