If you have ever lived in Manhattan, KS I certainly hope you have taken time to eat at the So Long Saloon! I went to college at Kansas State University and the So Long Saloon was one of my all time favorite places to eat. When my friends first tried to get me to eat this appetizer called Raspberry Black Bean Dip, I thought they were crazy. After one bite I think we ended up ordering more because it was so good!
Another friend of mine loved this stuff, too, and she created her own version which I am going to share with you. Certainly not as good as the real deal, but a close a second!
Raspberry Black Bean Dip: Serves 4-6
1 can of Black Beans drained and rinsed=.50 (you can get these at Aldi special times during the year)
1 8 oz. block of cream cheese=.50 (This is what I usually pay after coupons)
1 bottle of Broncoo Bob's Chipotle Raspberry Sauce (see image here) =7.49 (find in condiments section at Dillons... maybe elsewhere)
First, drain and rinse black beans and put into 2 qt. baking dish. Cube cream cheese and place on top of beans. Place in pre-heated 350 degree oven for 3-5 minutes. Just long enough for cheese to become soft.
Then, pull the dish out of the oven and stir together beans and cheese.
Last, add about 1/3 of a bottle of Raspberry Chipotle Sauce on top. Spread it around evenly and bake for another 10-15 minutes.
Serve with tortilla chips!
