Place two drained tins of black beans into your food processor. Add a tablespoon olive oil, 2 cloves of crushed garlic, a chopped green chilli, a teaspoon of ground cumin, pinch of salt and a squeeze of lime juice and pulse until smooth.
Scrape down the sides with a spatula and taste. Add more salt and lime juice if needed and process again until smooth.
Check the consistency. If it's too thick for your taste add cold water, a spoonful at a time, and process after each addition, until you have the consistency you like.
Serve immediately with your choice out of fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves, chopped red onion, sliced green chillies, lime wedges and tortilla chips or store in the fridge for up to 2-3 days* until ready to serve.
The garlic taste will get stronger the longer you leave it.
