Black Bean 'Hummus'

Hummus goes South of the Border! I spread this on bread or tortillas withvegetables for a quick sandwich, I dip carrots and celery into it, and I eat it with tortilla chipsfor a snack.

3 1/2 cups black beans
1 small onion, diced
1/2 green pepper, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 T ground cumin
1 1/2 t olive oil
2 T chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 c vegetable broth

Drain and rinse black beans if using canned.
Place olive oil in skillet set over medium-high heat. Add onions, peppers, and garlic and saute about three minutes, until vegetables are fragrant and starting to brown slightly. Add cumin, stir well, reduce heat to medium and cook another two minutes.
Place beans in food processor and pulse seveal times. Add vegetable mixture and pulse a few more times. Add vegetable broth in small batches to thin the dip to the desired consistency. Garlish with chopped cilantro. Serve immediately or store in refrigerator for up to 10 days.

Makes eight 1/2-cup servings!

Number of Servings: 8
