Roasted Red Pepper + Pinto Bean Dip

Posted Feb 13 2013 2:26pm

If you were paying attention to my last post , I mentioned that The Smart Kitchen build-your-own sandwich shop I set up at Whole Foods on Monday night featured not one, but two sandwich spreads (or, as I like to think of them, spreadable dips*).

*I don’t make a lot of sandwiches. But I do like to dip. [When I dip, you dip, we dip...]

Although the Raw Kale, Artichoke, and Cannelini Spread was good … I actually loved the second, even easier creation even more.

Just as I still had walnuts on my tastebuds, I obviously was still craving roasted red peppers. This Roasted Red Pepper + Pinto Bean Dip is as simple as emptying a can of pintos in a food processor with the roasted peppers, a handful of cilantro, nutritional yeast, and Mexican spices.

It’s slightly spicy and oh-so pretty. And it also looks like a sunset when you pair it with roasted winter squash. :) Roasted Red Pepper + Pinto Bean Dip

[Makes 1 1/2 cups]

  • 1 15-oz. can no-salt-added pinto beans, drained
  • 4 oz. roasted red peppers, packed in water [2 whole peppers]
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro (a handful)
  • 2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp. minced roasted garlic
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • Combine all ingredients in a food processor.

    Process until smooth.
