Just an idea...!

I had some black beans leftover from making quesadillas and wanted to do something with them - beans are so yummy and healthy, we have to enjoy them thoroughly, right?!
So, I decided to try making a dip using the same method I use for hummus, but using the black beans in place of chickpeas (garbanzos).
We called it Black Beans Hummus here at our house, but I am not sure if it would be appropriate to call it hummus as it does not have any chickpeas in them (which in my head you need in hummus!).
But, nomenclature aside, this dip turned out reeeeeally delicious! We enjoyed it quite a lot and I was actually very surprised with the delicious flavor it had! My husband also liked it a lot, but then he already likes plain black beans a lot more than I do.
To make this I simply pureed about a cup of black beans in the blender with one clove of garlic, about tablespoon of tahini (add more depending on your liking!), salt, pepper, a little bit of cumin and a little bit of water just to get it to the right consistency.
Easy, simple and delicious! It was a great snack we enjoyed with baked pita chips, yummy!

Ana, Carolina Brewery in Chapel Hill serves something similar with their nachos but it's a little chunkier. I hate black beans but am a convert after trying it. I tried it at home and came up with a recipe similar to yours but added some lemon juice in with it.

Black Beans, I had never seen. But if I'm not wrong, Nigella made Red Beans Hummus once. :)

Stupid question: your Black Beans is the same which we find in Brazil? :)

Menina, eu não costumo comer muito feijão preto. Acho que o mulatinho reina lá em SSA. A idéia foi providencial.
