Mexican Dip Trio


  • Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Scale

FOR THE SALSA

  • 28 ounces canned diced tomatoes
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 chunk onion, about 1/4 small onion
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded if you don't like things too spicy
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • salt, to taste
  • cayenne pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • cilantro, if desired

FOR THE SALSA VERDE

  • 7-8 fresh tomatillos, husks removed and rinsed
  • 1 serrano or jalapeno pepper, stem removed
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1/2 small onion
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • salt, to taste
  • FOR THE REFRIED BEAN HUMMUS
  • 28 ounces canned pinto beans, lightly drained
  • 1 jalapeno, halved and seeded to avoid too much spice if desired
  • 1 clove garlic, unpeeled
  • 1 small onion, peeled and halved
  • 1 lime, zested
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • salt, to taste
  • tortilla chips, for serving

Instructions

  1. For the red salsa, combine all the ingredients in a food processor or blender, then taste and adjust seasonings to your liking. If using cilantro, start with about 1 tablespoon fresh leaves and add from there to your taste.
  2. For the hummus and salsa verde, preheat the broiler to high and place the tomatillos, remaining onion, garlic, and jalapenos on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Broil on both sides until charred and juicy. Add the salsa verde ingredients with any accumulated juices to the food processor, then pulse, taste, and set aside. Add the refried bean hummus ingredients to the empty food processor, pulse, taste, and set aside.
  3. Enjoy one or three dips all together. Enjoy!

Notes

  • I make these all together, but of course you could make them one at a time!
  • For all three of these dips, 1 medium onion is fine: 1/2 for the hummus, 1 small chunk for the red salsa, and the rest (a little more than 1/4) for the salsa verde.
