Ingredients

How to make it

  • Slit the 2 green chillies, remove and discard the seeds. Chop the chillies finely.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan and saute the garlic, onion, green chillies and chilli powder over a medium-low heat. Stir frequently and cook for about 5-7 minutes, or until the onion has softened, but is not browned.
  • Drain the kidney beans, reserving 3 tbsp. of the bean juice. Reserve 2 tbsp. of kidney beans and process the rest of the beans in a food processor to a puree.
  • Add the pureed beans to the onion mixture in the pan, along with 3 tbsp. of reserved bean juice. Stir well and cook until heated through, for about 2 minutes.
  • Stir in the reserved whole beans and grated Cheddar cheese. Cook and stir for another 2 minutes, or until the cheese melts. Season with salt and mix in lime juice. Spoon the dip into a serving bowl.
  • Remove and discard the seeds from the remaining chilli pepper and slice it thin. Sautee the pepper in a separate small pan in a little bit of oil for 1-2 minutes. Sprinkle the chilli strips and Parmesan cheese over the top of dip for garnish. Serve with tortilla triangles, or your favourite chips.
  • For the Tortilla triangles:
  • Slice 3 tortillas in triangles. Place them on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Broil in the oven for about 3 minutes. Note: These cook super fast! Keep an eye on them and check every minute.

    Bluewaterandsand, the hush puppies sound like a great accompaniment to this dip! The sweetness of those will go nicely with the spicyness of the dip. Thanks for a great idea!

    Juels sweetie, this is one bomb of a dip, with the white cheddar and fresh chilies, the combo of the spices and the kidney beans just put this right over the top. This is a keeper, thanks for a great post,,,,,:)
