  • 1

    Jalapeño pepper
  • 12

    oz can Black beans drained
  • ½

    cup Mexican crema or sour cream
  • 2

    Garlic cloves
  • 2

    Tbsp Lime juice
  • ½

    cup chopped Cilantro
  • 1

    tsp Cayenne
  • 1

    tsp Paprika
  • ½

    tsp Cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • crumbly White cheese for garnish
  • fresh chopped Herbs for garnish
  • Spicy chili flakes for garnish


  • Step 1

    Roast the jalapeño pepper over an open flame, flipping here and there until the skin chars and blackens. It will start to do so in about 2-3 minutes. Alternatively, you can roast the jalapeño in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes or so, until the skins blackens and bubbles up.

  • Step 2

    Flip the jalapeño and blacken both sides. Add the jalapeño to a paper bag or plastic baggie and seal. Let it steam in the baggie for about 5 minutes to loosen the skin.

  • Step 3

    Remove peel off the skin. A towel will help, or a fork. Discard the skin.

  • Step 4

    Slice off the stem and give the jalapeño a rough chop. Toss it into a food processor with all of the ingredients and process until the dip is nice and smooth.

  • Step 5

    Spread the Black Bean Dip into a serving bowl and top it with chopped green herbs, crumbly white cheese and spicy chili flakes, if desired.

  • Step 6

    Serve it up with Strips Tortilla Chips!
