For a long time I had watched multiple TV shows featuring food processor recipes and I was always fascinated by the multitude of recipes and flavor combinations going into it. Well I think it was about time I had mine and yes, this week I got my very first food processor. Yay!
As it would be expected, I went surfing online hoping to find a good selection of food processor recipes. Then, I went to my pantry to see what I had. I was exhausted and didn’t feel like driving to the super market to shop for anything. A can of black beans jumped at me! Luckily, I had everything else that I could possibly need for a delicious taco dinner night.
Honestly, I found so many sources and options online that I already created a list of recipes I want to try making in my food processor. I’ll definitely add my personal twist to each one of them and will post them all here.
I went for the beans because I loved the idea of making soup bases and creams in the food processor. I knew exactly what kind of flavors I wanted to add to my beans recipe.
The beans cream came out great and it’s now my favorite recipe for potlucks. If I were to bring them to a potluck I would make white rice to go with them. However, since many people love them with chips, I could also add them on top of some cheese nachos.
I took a few short videos of me putting the ingredients in and working with the food processor. I hope the videos help show the process . Enjoy!
Here’s the Recipe:
1 can of black beans with the liquid
Juice from 1 lime
1 tsp of oregano
1 tsp of cumin
1 TSP jalapeño salsa
1/4 white onion cut in big chunks
1 TSP olive oil
1 tsp salt
Place all ingredients at once in the food processor and pulse in chop mode . Pulse until the mix is soft. If you need to add more liquid then add either 1 tsp olive oil or water and pulse again checking until you get the consistency you need or want. Taste to make sure the salt level is to your liking.
Add the mix to a pot to cook on low heat so it may be warm before serving . Alternatively, you could put it in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl for 1 minute or 1 -1/2 minutes . Cover the bowl with the beans with a napkin so you don’t end up with a mess in the microwave.
Enjoy the videos!
In this video one of my kids is preparing the taco or mini burrito and adding the black beans mix to it! The flavor was fantastic!
Next, I will be exploring oatmeal cookies recipes. I am delighted by all the options I have. I also want to try some scone and bread dough recipes in the food processor. 🙂
I hope you try this recipe. If you do, pleas tell me how it went in the comments .
