This hearty and healthy bean dip is a Chowhound favorite and guaranteed crowd-pleaser. The recipe only makes 5-6 servings, so if you’re feeding a crowd, you might want to double or triple it. (You should probably do that anyway – the leftovers are very versatile!)
1) To heighten the smokiness, use fresh whole cumin seeds, and toast them before grinding (that tip is compliments of fellow CHer Miss Needle). 2) Err on the side of caution with the chipotles, as they can be very spicy. Start with one – you can always add more if you like it hotter.
