Mole Black Bean Dip with Forte Chocolate

Welcome to my first #Choctoberfest recipe this week! Thanks to one of our awesome sponsors, Forte Chocolates, I had an amazingly delicious Dark Chocolate to add to a recipe you wouldn't normally expect to see chocolate in, Black Bean Dip. Now hear me out before you pass judgement on using chocolate in a savory dish. It added a depth of richness and just the slightest hint of sweetness, that really took it over the top.

Black Bean Mole Dip

Mole is a traditional sauce originally used in Mexican cuisine that usually contains chocolate. They knew what they were doing, because chocolate is super tasty in savory recipes! It adds a deep, rich flavor that will take your recipe to the next level. Normally it's used with meat dishes, but I decided to branch out and try something different, and added it to a black bean dip. The final dish totally knocked my socks off.

Mole Black Bean Dip

1 Tablespoon pure olive oil
1 small white onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 oz. Forte Dark Chocolate, chopped
1 - 19.75 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 - 1 oz. can diced green chiles (mild if you like it tame, medium to spice it up a bit)
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cotija or Feta cheese for topping (optional)

Heat oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onion and saute for about 7-9 minutes, stirring occasionally until they become translucent.
Add the garlic and cook for two minutes, stirring constantly so the garlic doesn't burn.
Add chocolate, cook and stir one minute more until chocolate is melted. Remove from heat.
Add chocolate mixture to a blender, along with the beans, chiles, and salt. Blend until dip is smooth.
Taste for seasoning then scrape dip into a serving bowl.
Top with cotija or feta cheese if desired, and serve with tortilla chips.
