Let's talk about ingredients first.

Bean dip-

2 cans of black beans

4 garlic cloves- minced

3 lime wedges

1 quarter of an onion-chopped

1 handful of cilantro-chopped

1 teaspoon of sugar

Olive oil

Salt and Pepper to taste

For the chips-

Veggie oil- Enough to fry your tortillas

Tortillas- I use flour, cut into quarters

 

First step is to chop, chop, chop the cilantro, onion, and garlic.

In a large skillet, heat up a few swirls of olive oil. When the oil is heated add your onions, sugar, salt and pepper.

Next, add the garlic and cilantro. BE CAREFUL not to burn the garlic (about a minute) When the garlic is heated pour in your two cans of beans and squeeze in your 4 lime wedges.

When your bean mixture is heated you can begin transferring the mixture to a food processor. I use the Magic Bullet. You might need to work in batches. A few pulses and you will be set!

Your bean dip is done :) You can add cheddar cheese or cojita cheese if you please.

Next up, heat the vegetable oil in a deep sauteing pan until its nice a hot. In the mean time cut your tortilla into quarters. When your oil is heated, add four pieces of tortilla at a time flipping once or twice. I like mine to be golden brown, but you can adjust your consistency to your liking.

Yummy crispy goodness!!!
