2 T olive oil
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp sea salt, fresh ground pepper to taste
8 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup Elderberry Chipotle Sauce
1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese.
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a small saucepan heat the black beans, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, sea salt, pepper and cumin. Mash the beans a bit, stir until warm and well blended. Adjust seasoning to taste, remove from heat and set aside.
In a small skillet cook the onion in the remaining 1 T olive oil over medium low heat until translucent; add minced garlic and cook another minute. Place cream cheese in a small bowl and add cooked onion and garlic; stir to combine.
Spread cream cheese mixture in the bottom of an 8 inch cast iron skillet or similar oven proof casserole dish. Top with seasoned black beans. Pour elderberry chipotle sauce over the black beans, and top with 1/2 cup of shredded Monterey Jack cheese.
Cook at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes until hot and bubbly and all the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with a little more cheese and chopped fresh cilantro. Serve immediately with tortilla chips.
