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.
  5. Squeeze lime over the sautéed bell pepper and onion mixture for extra flavor and then drain excess liquid.
  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.
