Calendar Cover


  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup mild picante sauce
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice


In a medium mixing bowl, partially mash black beans; they should remain a little chunky. In a medium size skillet over medium heat, heat the oil, then stir in onion and garlic and sauté for 4 minutes. To the onion and garlic add beans, tomato, picante sauce, cumin, and chili powder. Cook for 5 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat, add cilantro and lime juice, and mix well. Serve in a bowl with your favorite healthy chips for dipping.
