Portions: 36

Serving size: 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" square

Ingredients

  • 1/2 large red onion
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro
  • 2-1/2 cups white hominy, canned or fresh cooked
  • 1 cup pinto beans, fresh cooked
  • 8 ounces low-fat cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 12 ounces reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 lime

Preparation

  1. Chop onion, bell peppers and cilantro.
  2. Blend the following ingredients in a food processor: hominy, pinto beans, low-fat cream cheese, olive oil, 2 cloves of garlic, cumin and optional chili powder. Spread into a 9" x 9" pan.
  3. Using a spatula, layer sour cream over bean mixture.
  4. Lightly sauté in a skillet: red onion, green and red bell peppers and 1 clove of garlic. Avoid overcooking so that peppers are firm, not mushy.

  6. Spoon bell pepper mixture on top of sour cream and smooth until dip is covered.

Helpful hints

  • Serve the dip on flour tortillas when making tacos, or serve with homemade flour tortilla chips or pita chips for dipping.
  • Using fresh pinto beans that have been soaked instead of canned beans greatly reduces the sodium content of the dip.
  • Beans are high in potassium and phosphorus. This recipe shows you how to include a small amount of beans and still limit these minerals in your kidney diet.

i am confused. I thought beans were a no no for CKD Moderator comment: Most important is the amount of potassium and phosphorus you get from a serving and practicing portion control. The one cup of beans in this recipe is divided by 36 servings. This is much less potassium and phosphorus than a 1/2 cup of 1 cup serving of beans as an entree or side dish.
