One of my favourite challenges I like to give myself is to try and replicate commercial store bought dips, sauces, pasta sauces etc.
A friend of mine brought to my place recently a jar of Spicy Bean Salsa made by a well-known brand. We all really enjoyed it, so of course I looked at the ingredients on the jar and thought surely I can guess the measurements and replicate this using my Thermomix! This is a very tasty dip, which can also be used within nachos too.
This dip was part of our ThermoFun Cook Along Game Night – I gave our participants some clues to guess the ingredients just by looking at the picture. Over 200 comments later – some quite funny guesses – we ended up with two winners – Congrats goes to Michelle & Rhiannon for guessing the 9 ingredients.
- 1 garlic clove, peeled
- 1 spring onion, quartered
- 1 jalapeno pepper or chilpotle pepper
- ¼ tsp cumin, ground
- ¼ tsp oregano
- ¼ tsp raw sugar
- 1 can Borlotti Beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 tomato, quartered
- 10g white vinegar
- Place all ingredients into TM bowl and chop 1 sec / Turbo.
- Scrape down and repeat until desired consistency.
- Enjoy dip with crackers!
