This was good dip that was easy to throw together. I used fresh crushed garlic instead of the powder, and eyeballed the rest of the ingredients. I probably used way more than a 1/4 teaspoon of seasoning, and it did not come out tasting overly seasoned. I also added chopped jalapenos, green onion and cilantro. With the pintos, this tastes like a lighter version of refried beans. The flavor improves a lot when served warm/hot, I thought.
This made a nice dip that was mild and tasty. I enjoyed all the spices and the cilantro was a nice touch. I used pinto beans from the slow cooker. Thanks!
Very tasty bean dip made to go with our grilled skirt steak. The only changes I made were the pinto beans and I added quite a bit more of the seasoning. Served this dip alongside some guacamole and tortilla chips.
