Smashed Pinto Bean Dip


     For Moms Club playgroup today, I broke out an old recipe from pre-parent days to see if it was still good…and it was! Sauteed garlic & onion infuse great flavor. I served it warm--a cozy hors d’oeuvre on this January day. The dip is also good served cool J

Ingredients:
5 cloves garlic, minced  
½ c. minced onion
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2   15.5-oz. cans pinto beans
½ c. light sour cream
½ tsp. ground cumin
¼ tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. salt (or less)
2 Tbsp. diced “sliced jalapenos” (from a jar)


Directions:

1. Mince garlic and onions. Put them in a small frying pan with oil and sauté over medium heat until softened.

2. In a bowl, mash pinto beans. I used a potato masher at first, and finished up the job with my electric hand mixer. The beans were still a little chunky, but I like texture.

3. Combine all ingredients in bowl and serve with tortilla chips or veggies!

I like “Hint of Lime” tortilla chips!
