Baked Mexican Black Bean Dip

This dip is a great starter for a Mexican Themed dinner night. I'm not too wonderful with "precise measurements", so please use the spices listed to you own taste. I sometimes will add diced, fresh tomatoes on top when they're in season. Also, some green onion on top is always nice too.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Mix black beans with cumin, coriander, chili powder and cayenne pepper and spread over the bottom of an over-proof baking dish.
  2. I don't usually measure the spices, so please use them to your own taste.
  3. (I'm a bit heavy handed with the cayenne pepper!) Sprinkle the grated cheese over top of the beans.
  4. I usually sprinkle a little chili powder or cumin on top of the cheese to give it a little color.
  5. Bake in preheated oven at 375°F for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbling slightly.
  6. Remove from oven and spoon sour cream evenly over the top of the cheese.
  7. Add shredded lettuce, jalapeños (if using), and top with fresh cilantro.
  8. Serve immediately with nacho chips for dipping.

I didn't have black beans so used refried beans. Nicely spiced and a breeze to make. Went well with my mexican-themed lunch.
