I'm not really sure if I should call this hummus or bean dip...
You will need: 1 can of black beans, 2 large cloves of garlic, 1/2 a medium onion, 1/3 cup of cilantro, 2 Tbsp of olive oil, 1 (or 2, depending on how spicy you like it) chipotle pepper(s), and 1 tsp of adobo sauce.
Get out your mini food processor (or regular sized one). Cut the 1/2 onion into 1 inch cubes to help out the processor.
Toss the onion into the food processor.
Smash the 2 garlic cloves and peel them.
Throw them in the food processor with the onion.
Grab a chipotle pepper from the can...
And toss that into the food processor. If I hadn't been making this for myself, I would have put in 2 peppers.
Put a teaspoon of the adobo sauce the peppers are in into the food processor.
Chop the stems off half a bunch of cilantro...
Toss it into the food processor.
Pulse everything in the food processor.
Scrape down the sides with a spatula.
Drain and rinse the can of black beans and pour them into the food processor.
Give it all a whirl.
It will be super thick.
Drizzle in olive oil while you keep the food processor running. Keep drizzling until you get the desired consistency, about two tablespoons.
Pour the hummus into a nice bowl and you're ready to eat!
Enjoy with tortilla chips, pita chips, carrots, and other vegetables!
