This recipe goes with Argentine Black Bean Flatbread with Chimichurri Drizzle

Cooking Light JANUARY 2007

  • Yield: 3 cups (serving size: 1/2 cup)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped onion
  • 1 (15-ounce) can 50%-less-sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can organic fire-roasted diced tomatoes with green chiles, undrained (such as Muir Glen)

Preparation

Combine all ingredients in a blender, and process until smooth.

Wine note: Black beans have a delicious earthy character that tastes wonderful with an earthy Argentinean red wine. The most famous red grape of Argentina is malbec, which was brought to Argentina from the Bordeaux region of France more than a century ago. One tasty favorite that's well priced: Dona Paula Estate Malbec 2005 from Luján de Cuyo, Argentina ($16). -Karen MacNeil
