I submitted this recipe and glad to see all the good reviews. Please note that you can use tomato paste instead of ketchup. Also kick it up a notch with more chili powder and onion powder. Also good with powdered garlic. Make it really fresh by adding fresh chopped onion freshed chopped garlic and fresh cilantro! Read More

I followed the recipe and it turned out too sweet and weird tasting. I tried to fix it by adding more salt 1 tsp minced garlic 1/4 onion and 1/2 tbsp hot chili sauce which helped by giving it a more "mexican" flavor. Did not try this but I think adding fresh cilantro should make it even better. Sorry about all the changes but the original is just not good. Read More

Wow! So easy & tasty. I reduced the amount of ketchup to 1 tsp since it's not my favorite & it saved add'l calories. Thanks for a great recipe. Read More

Very good. I was just looking for a healthy appetizer and was pleasantly suprised at how good it tasted. I did not have any apple cider vinegar so I used 3 tsps of balasamic vinger. afraid the dip would be too bland and had planned on adding some green chiles. I forgot about the chiles and it did not need it. The ingredients for this recipe(except for the apple cider vinegar) are things I always have on hand. I will definitely make it again. It tasted good with chips and but also with carrot and celery stick. Read More

Very Good and Easy! I cook my own black beans and felt I needed to add a little of the broth to make it more creamy. It was delicious! Read More
