OK for the base, but I added 3 tomatoes instead of one, lime juice, more cilantro and I subbed the hot sauce with chipotle in adobo for some smokey heat. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It's a 4-star recipe with some modifications. Agree with other reviewers that it's too bland. I added garlic, lime juice, jalapeno and chipotle salsa for some extra flavor and kick. I also added some chopped red onion and cilantro at the end to make it look nicer! item not reviewed by moderator and published
So good. I included the water in the black bean can, 4 garlic cloves, peppers and a whole red onion-yummy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I found this recipe to be quite tasty and it made a whole lot more than I thought it would. I also added a clove of garlic and a bit more hot sauce for some extra oomph. Next time I will add some lime juice! Regardless, the dip was quite a hit and will make again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed the recipe and added half of lime juice, one garlic clove, and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and it is good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I agree with some of the other reviews that say this needs more liquid. I ended up using evoo, but wish I'd kept some of the bean liquid. I also added some garlic powder and the juice from half a lime. I'd make it again, but I might tweak the ingredients a bit more. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for a small dinner party and thought with the fresh ingrediants it would be great, but this was totally not eatable! My guest and husband were truthful when they said "what a waste of black beans". item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy and fast. As others have said, needs more oomph. First time I made this, I added fresh jalepeno, a squirt of lime, and doubled the tomato (this adds flavor and helps add liquid). Needs plenty of salt (unless you use heavily salted beans or canned tomato). Next time I will add garlic too. A great low-fat and healthy snack! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful, very tasty and healthy. Everyone thought is was "restaurant style" - a big hit! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Threw this together as a side dish for some barbeque ribs. Very good, although I didn't add the tomato. I may up the spices somewhat next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A Good base, but needs more liquid (reserved liquid from canned beans a good option). Water or olive oil would work, too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is an excellent recipe and made a lot more than I was thinking it would. I added a couple cloves of garlic and a jalapeno for some spice and it was even more super delish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made the recipe as written and it was wonderful--got many compliments on it! Garnished with a wedge of lime and a few sprigs of cilantro--pretty! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I liked this--actually, I like all bean dips--but it could use a bit more oomph. I added a clove of garlic and some lime juice at the suggestion of other reviewers. But I would add even more next time--maybe a couple of cloves of garlic, juice from a whole lime and extra hot sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published
If made exactly by the recipe, it's a bit bland. Definitely add lime juice. I also used one whole red onion (on the smallish side, but still about twice as much as the recipe calls for). I used the chipotle Tabasco sauce--added a nice flavor. I serve it in a bowl with a dollop of sour cream, shredded cheese, and chopped scallions. Delicious and EASY! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I added lime juice and a couple of pickled jalepeno slices. Really tasty and not too spicy. Interestingly, the color is sort of reddish purple rather than black. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The only thing better than the tase of this dip is the short preparation time. I've made this dozens of times - always get rave reviews. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've been missing something when I have tried to make it without a recipe....found what I was missing here!!! Excellent with fresh jalapenos added item not reviewed by moderator and published
sooooo good! but i think i will also try adding lime the next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great dip, guys! BUT--you forgot the garlic. Next time we make this, I'll add a clove and some lime juice as another reviewer suggested. Thanks so much for the recipe. We absolutely love your show. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dip is also great served warm with whatever kind of cheese you might want to melt into it. Next time I prepare this I am going to try adding some lime juice. I love your show and enjoy trying the recipes and experimenting with them. Thank you! item not reviewed by moderator and published
