    ninja's Note:

    Healthy, spicy, and very low fat! I think you'll like this if you like a little heat in your dip and, it's a little different than the many other good recipes posted here on 'Zaar. To reduce the heat, you can omit or use less of the adobo sauce, use only 1 chipotle pepper, or use a mild salsa (I like Pace Medium Chunky Salsa and don't measure). I use my favorite brand of refried black beans, but the recipe works just as well with refried pinto beans, which make a great foundation for bean nachos if you don't use too much salsa. Serve with tortilla chips.

      This is really good. I used Refried Beans and a hot pico de gallo from my local Mexican market for the salsa, and enjoyed the result very much. I will need to remember to bring this to the next potluck.

      This is the best bean dip I have ever had!!!! This one is all flavor!!!!!! The saute of the onions with the garlic and adobo peppers gives it such a smokey, wonderful flavor!!!!! I halved this recipe because I was making it for a two person lunch/snack. I couldn't find refried black beans, even in Arizona, go figure!!! So I used regular refried pinto beans and just added black beans to it for texture. I drained the rotel before adding it and I pretty much added the whole can of that. I like spicy so I added an extra 1/2 tsp of adobo sauce too. This recipe is definitely a keeper, wonderful job Ninja!!!!
