High-Fiber Bean Dip

I originally looked at this recipe and thought, “ew…kidney beans?”, but I’ll give any food a second chance. Now I know I don’t have to settle for the high-calorie bean-dip counter-part ever again – this was just as easy and doesn’t give me a heavy feeling after a chow-down 🙂

INGREDIENTS
1 x 15 oz can red kidney beans, rinsed and well drained
1 1/2 ts extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp chili powder
1 ts[ oregano
1/2 small onion, minced fine
1 clove garlic, minced
Pinch sea salt and fresh black pepper to taste

PREPARATION

Blend the beans and oil until the mixture resembles a paste.  Add remaining ingredients and mix well.

Prep time 17 minutes
Cook time 0 minutes
Makes 36, one-Tbsp servings

  1. oh, let me tell ya…I am just glad I ran out of chips before I had a chance to over dose on the dip! I love this. Next time I might add cayenne and chopped cilantro.
