You saved dinner! We are scraping the bottom of the food pantry this week and I had a few ingredients for this recipe. That being said, I had to made a few substitutions ... granulated garlic and dried cilantro for fresh, and grapefruit juice for the lime. I know it is going to be awesome made as written. I served my boys the last two tortillas in the house and I ate with Sun Chips. YUM!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled (or jarred garlic to equal 3 cloves)
  • 12 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil (or other vegetable oil)
  • 3 tablespoons smooth low-sugar peanut butter (*)
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (juice from 1 to 2 limes, to taste)


  1. Finely chop garlic and cilantro in food processor.
  2. Add beans, oil, and peanut butter and juice from one lime.
  3. Process until beans are pureed, appx 1 minute, stopping midway to scrape sides of processor bowl.
  4. Add remaining lime juice to taste.
  5. Serve at once or refrigerate, covered, for up to 3 days.
  6. Serve with fresh veggies, such as carrot and celery sticks or cucumber slices or tortilla chips or bagel chips or pita wedges.
  7. *NOTE: For best results, use a "natural" style peanut butter with no- or low-sugar.
