Chipotle Black Bean Sauce and Dip

This sauce is so smooth and it’s easy to vary the level of heat by adding more or less Chipotle Salsa to the Black Beans.

Ingredients

15 oz. Can Seasoned Black Beans (I prefer Rosita Brand for this recipe)
1/2 to 3/4 Cup Chicken Stock (less for Dip, more for sauce)
1/4 to 1/2 Cup Chipotle Salsa (depending on your preference for heat)

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil and reduce to simmer. Simmer for five minutes and remove from heat. Using an immersion blender (or traditional blender or food processor), blend all ingredients into a smooth sauce, or leave a bit chunky for dip.

Chipotle Salsa

This a smokey hot salsa that can be used on it’s own, or added to other ingredients as a seasoning for other sauces, dips and spreads.

This recipe makes 4 Cups. It freezes well and can be doubled easily.

Ingredients

1 7 ounce can Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce
3 Cups Fresh Red Salsa (homemade or store bought)

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 30 minutes until fresh salsa is cooked and chipotle peppers are incorporated into the sauce
