Black Bean Bip AKA The "Chocolate" Dip

More bean dip. YAY! This is for when you and your family gets tired of the Pesto Bean dip I wrote about earlier. I mean I love the stuff and it gets me to eat veggies, but sometimes you just need a bit of variety.I found the recipe for Black bean dip from Tidy Mom, and altered it slightly to fit the ingredients I had on hand. Below is the recipe with my changes:

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 small onion
1/2 T balsamic vinegar
3/4 t kosher salt
1/2t smoked paprika
heaping 1/2 t dried parsley
4cloves garlic, minced

saute the onions until translucent in some olive oil. puree everything in a food processor. stream in olive oil to get dip to your desired consistency.


As a final note: Mrblocko made the mistake of telling Blockette that this dip was made from black beans. Upon hearing this, Blockette immediately refused to eat any more. I kicked Mrblocko under the table and told her "Daddy was just joking. The dip is really made from chocolate. That's what gives it that dark color." Since my white lie, she asked for the dip every day at lunch, until it was gone. Chocolate makes everything better, even if there isn't any in the dish at all.
