Will has declared that this is the best thing I ever made, and he says there wasn’t much of a competition! When it was first stewed together, he eyed it cautiously, then, tentatively dipped a chip and took a bite – thoughtfully considering the flavors. He looked up as he chewed, his eyes wide and excitedly asked for a bowl of his own. The following couple of days, while the dip dallied, he’d call from the couch, “Can I have some of that really good dip?” There was a disappointed, “Aww…” the day he discovered it diminished.
This came about with the addition of the black beans to the little breakfast patties, which only use a bit. There have been many delicious looking recipes for black bean dip floating about, lately, and that seemed like a fair enough use. We went with none of the ones we’d seen, bookmarked or forwarded, opting for what’s called a “Tex Mex” black bean dip, ala allrecipes, omitting corn and cheese, but otherwise, as is. It is outstanding, indeed, and Will – will be pleased, more will soon need to be made as the last batch of patties was a bust: Something about one half cup of flax meal seeming like a lot as they were made – because it was, and the ensuing patties resulted with a flavor on par with construction paper.
