    Black Bean, Pepitas, and Nutella Spread

    This multi-purpose dip or spread is nutty, slightly sweet, spicy and more complex than you'd think thanks to the addition of Nutella and raw cacao powder. You can enjoy it straight up with good, crunchy corn tortilla chips or use it in a tasty quesadilla. If you're feeling particularly festive, layer some Oaxaca cheese on top of your spread, broil until the cheese gets good and bubbly, and you've got a tasty iteration of queso fundido.


    Ingredients
    2
    tablespoons
    pepitas
    3
    teaspoons
    avocado oil
    1/4
    teaspoon
    cumin
    1
    small shallot, diced
    2
    cloves
    garlic, chopped
    1
    14-ounce can black beans, fully drained
    1
    tablespoon
    chunky peanut butter
    1
    chipotle pepper in adobo
    1 1/2
    tablespoons
    Nutella
    2
    tablespoons
    Lime Juice
    1
    teaspoon
    raw cacao powder
    1/2
    avocado
    Directions
    Dry roast pepitas in a skillet on medium high until toasted, about 1 minute (you'll hear a popping sound). Stir frequently so they don't burn. Remove from skillet to cool and set aside.
    In the same skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of avocado oil on medium low heat, then add cumin and shallots. Sauté until soft. Add garlic and stir for about 30 seconds. Turn off heat and add black beans.
    With the back of a wooden spoon, roughly mash beans into the shallot/garlic mixture in the skillet and set aside.
    Add three quarters of the bean mixture into a food processor along with the peanut butter, pepitas (reserve a few for garnish if you like), chipotle pepper, Nutella, salt, 2 teaspoons avocado oil and lime juice. Blend till smooth.
    Add cocoa powder and avocado. Blend briefly. Taste and add more Nutella or salt (to your preferences). Add the remaining quarter portion of the chunky black beans and shallots. Stir to combine.
    If you want the dip a little thinner feel free to add a little water until desired consistency is reached. Top with a few pepitas and chopped cilantro leaves.
