A creamy and flavorful dip that begins with dried black beans and garlic cloves.
I love creamy refried beans and I’ve made them in the slow cooker plenty of times. I love black beans too and decided to make a creamy refried beans version of black beans. These beans came out looking like chocolate pudding and I even tricked my kids for a few minutes. Ha ha! I like this dip warm but you can definitely serve cold, if you prefer. We use this dip for tortilla chips, spread it on tortillas and sprinkle with cheese and even use it to thicken up tortilla soup. I hope you like it as much as we do!
