Chipotle Black Bean Dip


2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon water
2 teaspoons minced, seeded, canned chipotle pepper
¼ teaspoon salt

Put the beans, cilantro, lime juice, water, chipotle pepper, salt and pepper, the onion mixture and the remaining tablespoon of oil in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth. Serve garnished with chopped cilantro.
