Robust Black Bean Hummus

Being a big fan of traditional hummus made with chickpeas, I thought it would be a fun adventure to try black bean hummus. The dip had a robust, rich flavor and was fresh and satisfying at the same time. I plan to make this recipe again once summer comes.

I previously experimented with dried black beans in the Marinade Express. Click here to read about my experiment and my Healthy And Decadent Black Bean Brownies recipe.

1 cup cooked black beans
2 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon vinager
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Fresh cilantro, to taste
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
Tortilla chips, for dipping


1) Pre-soak 1 cup dried black beans in the marinade express with the unflavored MX seasoning mix for two hours. This will make 2 cups of cooked black beans.
2) Boil the black beans for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until tender.
3) Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth and creamy.
4) Garnish cilantro.
5) Serve with tortilla chips.
