I'll be at Johns Hopkins this weekend and looking for good eats for the family. Last year went to the Fifties Diner (not great), Cafe Hon (little better), and a Japanese rest. across the street. Looking for better options this year. Thanks.
This Creole classic was actually designed for the dried kidney bean—an inexpensive staple that could simmer away while Monday’s wash gets done, with a hunk of pork or sausage from Sunday night’s supper.
Cooked dried black beans provide the wow factor in this simple dip; you could serve the blended beans alone and guests would swoon over the rich, full-bodied flavor. Use leftover dip as a spread for sandwiches or burritos, or stir into a bean soup.
