Mexican Bean Dip: Serves 16; 2 tablespoons per serving

A colorful array of garnishes, such as cilantro, radishes, tomatoes, green and red onions, and jalapeño peppers, would be perfect finishing touches for this creamy dip.

2 teaspoons very low sodium beef bouillon granules

1/4 cup hot water

15.5-ounce can no-salt-added kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 cup no-salt-added tomato sauce

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper

2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

2 medium garlic cloves, minced

1/4 teaspoon cayenne, or to taste

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin (optional)

1 tablespoon olive oil (extra-virgin preferred)

Put the bouillon granules in a food processor or blender. Pour the hot water over the granules, stirring to dissolve.

Add the remaining ingredients except the oil. Process until smooth.

To serve at room temperature, stir in the olive oil (don't process it). To serve warm, heat the dip in a small saucepan over medium heat for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and stir in the oil.

Cook's Tip on Decorative Veggie Bowls:

When entertaining, halve butternut and acorn squash lengthwise and remove seeds. Put a different garnish in each squash half. For the dip, cut the top off a large acorn squash and remove the seeds, or use a decorative bowl. Arrange the garnish-filled squash halves around the dip.
