Milk Street Recipe
Milk Street Bowtie Black Bean Puree

Black Bean Puree

15 minutes

3 cups

This bean puree is quick and simple to make. Keep some on hand for use as a filling for tacos, quesadillas or molletes; serve it warm as a side dish to any Mexican-inspired meal; or use it as a dip for tortilla chips. Leftovers can be thinned with water or broth to the desired consistency.

Don't forget to reserve ¼ cup of the bean liquid after you drain the cans. And don't rinse the beans after draining them; the liquid left clinging to them helps create a puree with a silky consistency.

1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon ground coriander

2 chipotle chilies in adobo sauce
