Use as a side, a sauce or add to your favorite Mexican recipe! This is a no cook recipe
30 oz. can La Preferida Black Beans
16 oz jar of your favorite salsa or use homemade
cilantro, rough chopped
lemon or lime juice
Drain the beans. Take half of the drained beans and puree them in your food processor. They will turn into a pasty consistency that looks like chocolate pudding. Mix the pureed and whole drained beans with the salsa in a bowl. Add the cilantro and jalepenos or other hot peppers to taste. I also like to squeeze half a lemon. Mix and taste.
This sauce can be used over grilled chicken and rice as an entree. I also like to use it as a base for tacos and burritos or as a dipping sauce. My favorite use is for nachos, like at your favorite restaurant. Put the chips on a plate surrounding a salsa crock. Drizzle black bean sauce, plus cheese over the chips. Place in oven to melt cheese and add your favorite toppings like onions, cilantro, diced chicken or taco meat. The possibilities are endless!
