Mole Black Bean Dip

Mole Black Bean Dip (mole = mo-lay) is just a little bit different. Black beans, mild chilies and easy. There is even a secret ingredient. Perfect.

 

I wanted a dip that was a bit different this Cinco de Mayo so I came up with Mole Black Bean Dip (mole = mo-lay).  Black beans, mild chilies and a little bit of chocolate.  Am I crazy to add chocolate?  Nope.  There are many different mole sauce recipes and a specialized few have chocolate in them.  Just a tad.  So why not turn it into a dip. To me the mix of flavors is just right.   I especially like the big scoop Fritos with it but you can use any of your favorites to make this a special day.

  2. We winter in Mexico and mole is a common dish where we live. There, they add a little bit of lime (as in makes thing decompose) as well as chocolate. Generally, I’m not a fan although there are so many variances and I love a few of them. I’m sure that my whole family would enjoy your recipe.
