eHow Video: Pinto Bean Salsa Dip

eHow has titled this video “Low-Fat Pinto Bean Dip.” It is, indeed, low in fat as there is no sour cream, cheese, or oil. But what I think is so great about this dip is that, unlike your typical pinto bean dip which is usually thick and heavy and leaves a lump in your stomach, this is just so light and fresh. The ingredients are incredibly simple, but they come together to create something really flavorful. Hence my preferred title: “Pinto Bean Salsa Dip.”

Do you know why pinto beans are called “pinto” beans? In Spanish, “pinto” means “painted,” which is a reference to the beautiful reddish-brown markings that appear on the beans when they are dried. So “pinto beans” literally translates to “painted beans.” It’s probably the artist in me, but I get a HUGE kick out of that. Painted beans!

Anyway, if you are looking for a quick and savory snack or appetizer, this one is a definite winner. My only regret when making it was that I didn’t double the recipe because it went fast!

1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup chopped plum tomato
1/2 jalapeno, seeds removed
1-15 oz can of pinto beans
2 teaspoons lime juice

1. Add all the ingredients to a food processor and pulse until desired consistency.
