My favorite time of the year is coming up: football season!! I love watching as many college and professional games as I can. This is the one time a year I do not make any weekend plans other than watching games or tailgating! Now with game watching comes eating and lots of it, so I am already working on new recipes this year that I can enjoy while tailgating or watching the games at home. Some of my favorite game time foods are foods that involve Habanero peppers or hot sauce. Since I am trying out new things, I decided I wanted to kick my normally plain black bean dip up a notch but still keep it easy. I wanted to make an Habanero Black Bean Dip!!!

While picking up some groceries at Publix a couple days ago, I decided to stroll down the International Foods aisle and see what I could use to add more flavor to my dip. Now, I grew up in a Cuban household and we do not add spicy peppers or hot sauce to our dishes so I never know which one to get. I'm a little scared of using the actual habanero peppers. I might use too much and ruin my meal so I prefer to use a bottled hot sauce. 

I picked up the most authentic hot sauce I found: El Yucateco. I purchased one of each flavor available since I wasn't sure exactly how hot they actually were. 

El Yucateco Hot Sauce comes in:
Red Habanero Sauce
Green Habanero Sauce
XXXtra Hot Kutbil-ik Sauce

When I got home, I tried each one out and decided to use the one with the hottest flavor (XXXtraHotKutbil-ik Sauce) to make my new and improved Habanero Black Bean Dip! I love black bean dip. I eat it with pita chips, veggies or regular chips. All you need for this dip is a blender and three ingredients. Couldn't be any simpler!!

3-Ingredient Habanero Black Bean Dip

1 15 oz. can black beans
4 oz sour cream
1 tbsp El Yucateco XXXtra Hot Kutbil-ik sauce


In a blender, add one can of black beans. You can drain out all the water if you want a really thick dip or leave some in for a thinner dip. Don't use all the water in the can!

Add hot sauce. I added about a tbsp, you can use more or less depending on your tolerance of hot sauce. I'm a rookie, only a little for me!
