Spicy Chipotle Bean Dip

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by ninja

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 Recipe #96870 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.

  1. Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium high heat. Add onions, garlic and chipotle pepper. Stir and saute 5 to 7 minutes or until onion softens.
  2. Add cumin, oregano and adobo sauce (if using), stirring to awaken herb flavors, about 2 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and stir in refried beans. Splash salsa or Rotel around beans and stir to combine.
  4. Reduce heat to low and continue to cook beans, stirring occasionally, until warm throughout, 5 to 10 more minutes. Serve with tortilla chips for dipping.
