I made this exactly to the recipe (except for subbing parsley for cilantro) and enjoyed it quite a bit. The beans were certainly an unusual addition, but as beans (particularly black beans) are a favorite of mine, I liked the addition. I just realized I forgot to toast the sesame seeds - whoops! Well regardless, I'm looking forward to enjoying this on crackers *and* rolled into tortillas. (Having tried it both ways for the photo, I think I like the additional crunch from the crackers more though). Thanks for sharing your recipe creation Tink! :)Reply
