This recipe is so simple to make! If you are looking for something to make quick that is full of flavor, this is your meal! All you need is 4 ingredients! It’s pure genius! I was inspired by Angela’s 60 Second Black Bean Dip and Stuffed Peppers.
- 2 peppers, any color
- 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1/2 cup tomato/pasta sauce or salsa
- Handful of carrots, chopped
- Crushed black pepper
I had recently received a package from Don Sabrosa with a variety of salsas, so I knew this would be the perfect meal to try the salsa’s with! I went with the Natural Gourmet Salsa – Roasted Garlic Mild flavor. The second I opened the can I could smell all the fabulous ingredients. It was so yummy! I love me some salsa!
All you do is put all the ingredients (except for the peppers) into the food processor, and away you go! I processed mine for about 20 seconds. I liked to keep some chunky bits in the dip, but that’s my own personal preference.
I love my little food processor! It is so fabulous and petite and perfect for making dips (and ice cream!)
How yummy does that look?
I then sliced the peppers and filled it up with the dip! It’s that easy! I myself am an avid cheese lover, so I topped the stuffed peppers with some cheese and into the oven it went! 350F for about 25 minutes! I pretty much just judged mine by when the cheese was all melted!
Nutritious AND Delicious! Yumm!
Are you thinking about making these tonight yet? If you aren’t, you totally should be! You WON’T be disappointed! Thanks for the great idea Ange!
I also am USUALLY a serious sour cream fan. I know its not the best in the whole world for me, but I like the cool creamy taste with any Mexican inspired dish. Tonight with my meal, I decided to try a new trick > instead of sour cream, use plain yogurt! Worked like a charm!
Post dinner boyf and I finished watching Season 1 of True Blood on Netflix. I love that show! We have to catch up with season 2 now. Luckily it’s OnDemand, so we can watch it whenever we feel like. I heart True Blood! We watched the movie and enjoyed a glass of pinot
Last (and BEST) part about the bean dip before I forget: LEFTOVERS!! I got a while Tupperware container filled with fabulous dip! I love it! Lunch tomorrow – check!
