This unique spicy black bean dip will blow you away with the complex flavors of two heritage ingredients from the Slow Food Ark of Taste. The tepary bean has been cultivated for thousands of years by the indigenous people of the Sonoran Desert. Traditionally brown or white, the rare black tepary bean comes from an ancient tradition of saving the black seeds each year. Even for an heirloom bean we find them more flavorful, and the silky texture holds its shape after boiling.
This super easy salad is a fantastic vegan main dish for those summer days (or when you want to invoke a little summer indoors). A quick saute of gourmet heirloom beans in Amanda Frietag's Chica Adobo Seasoning delivers a savory, spicy kick. This whole recipe comes together in less than 10 minutes for a meal that will even satisfy the meat eaters at the table.
