  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 2 jalapeño peppers seeds removed, chopped
  • 1 large clove garlic peeled, chopped
  • ¼ cup yellow or red bell pepper chopped
  • 3 - 4 cherry tomatoes sliced
  • 2 15 oz cans black beans drained
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons cocoa powder*
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro


  • Add the chopped onion, chopped jalapeño, garlic, bell pepper, black beans and water to a food processor bowl. Pulse a few times, pushing down contents that go up the sides. Add the cumin and cocoa powder and pulse again until smooth.
  • Place in a microwave-safe container and cook for 4 minutes. Remove from the microwave and allow to cool for a minute.
  • Stir in the lime juice and chopped cilantro. Add more lime juice and/or water to achieve a thinner consistency if necessary.
  • Garnish with more chopped cherry tomatoes. Serve warm with tortilla chips.


* The cocoa powder adds some nice color and actually adds a nice, savory flavor as well.
