This is for a gathering of close friends – beans and garlic can be a pretty powerful combination! The dip isn’t terribly unhealthy – that is if you use low calorie mayonnaise – but it does change the taste a bit. I would rather have a little bit of something unhealthy that tastes great than a whole lot of something that is healthy and doesn’t satisfy me at all! You make your own choice. But if you are having a southern bbq along with the BBQ Ribs recipe – this is an appropriate starter.
Preparation time: 10 minutes and chilling for about an hour
Cooking time: None
1 can of pinto beans
1 crushed clove of garlic
1/4 cup of mayonnaise
1 tsp of chopped chili peppers ( I leave these out since I don’t care for spicy food)
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
Combined cooked pinto beans with all other ingredients and mix well then put in the fridge for an hour or two and serve as a dip. Depending on how hungry the gang is, this could serve about 8-10 folks.
