Having grown up very near the Mexico border in San Diego, I was surrounded by Hispanic culture and food.  Many of my friends were Mexican and I absolutely loved the bits of their culture they brought to my life.

One big perk to living so close to the border was the exposure I had to all the wonderful foods.  Hispanic foods offer savory, spicy, and sweet flavors that tantalize the palate.

The other day as I was snacking on some tortilla chips I came across a recipe that piqued my taste buds.

So, in honor of National Hispanic Heritage month (September 15th- October 15th), here was the result…


Black bean roasted red pepper dip


And, I happened to have a bottle of Peloponnese Whole Sweet Peppers (Roasted Red Peppers) that Hormel sent me.  I don’t usually keep these stocked in my pantry so I was so excited to find a recipe to use them in!

This was not only super quick to make, but it is relatively healthy for you too (as long as you don’t mind a bit of cream cheese).   This Black Bean & Roasted Red Pepper dip is the perfect dip for parties, dinner parties, or just something to satisfy an evening snack craving.

Here is my adapted recipe (from the Mission Tortilla Chips bag).

    Great game day recipe! I would have to spice it up a bit, we like our dips hot! I bet this would be awesome with some blue corn chips, or even on a taco.
  13. This recipe sounds wonderful and I'm looking forward to trying it soon! I like making my own hummus, and have been wondering how I could change it up - this dip is just the right answer to having a healthy dip that I can make myself!!!
