  • 2 cans black beans
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • juice of 1 lime about 2 T
  • 1 t cumin
  • 1/2 t paprika
  • 3/4 t salt
  • 1 t onion powder
  • 1 T olive oil optional


  • Place all of your ingredients except for 1 can of beans into your food processor. (be sure to mince your garlic before putting it in, as you process it so quickly that you will have chunks remaining otherwise—trust me).
  • Pulse until blended.
  • Add the second can of beans and pulse a few more times to incorporate the beans, but not so much that they turn into mush.
  • Serve right away, or store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to a week. Enjoy!
