Addictive Black Bean Dip, from Gael

Addictive Black Bean Dip, from Gael

From an online list I am on. The woman says: "it is my favorite dip ever. It is sort of like crack, so if you have any sort of addictive personality, steer clear. I've warned you. The lime and cilantro make it."

2 1/4 cups of black beans, rinsed and drained
3/4 tsp salt
1 T canola oil
4 large garlic cloves, minced
1 medium jalapeno, minced
2 T fresh lime juice
2 T minced fresh cilantro
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 cup salsa
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup grated cheddar
Puree the beans with salt and 1/4 cup of water

Preheat the oven to 400.

Heat the oil over medium heat. Saute the garlic and jalapeno just until tender, about 3 minutes.

Remove from heat, and stir in beans, lime juice, cilantro, chili powder, salsa, cayenne to taste, and half the green onion.

Spoon the dip into a 1 quart baking dish, and top with grated cheese. Bake for 20 minutes.

Garnish with remaining green onions and serve with chips.
