Roasted Red Pepper + Pinto Bean Dip

If you were paying attention to my last post, I mentioned that The Smart Kitchen build-your-own sandwich shop I set up at Whole Foods on Monday night featured not one, but two sandwich spreads (or, as I like to think of them, spreadable dips*).

*I don’t make a lot of sandwiches. But I do like to dip. [When I dip, you dip, we dip…]

Although the Raw Kale, Artichoke, and Cannelini Spread was good… I actually loved the second, even easier creation even more.

Just as I still had walnuts on my tastebuds, I obviously was still craving roasted red peppers.This Roasted Red Pepper + Pinto Bean Dip is as simple as emptying a can of pintos in a food processor with the roasted peppers, a handful of cilantro, nutritional yeast, and Mexican spices.

It’s slightly spicy and oh-so pretty.And it also looks like a sunset when you pair it with roasted winter squash. :)Roasted Red Pepper + Pinto Bean Dip
