Black Bean and Jalapeno Dip
This recipe was devised to make use of McCain potato wedges – a lovely, spicy dip which comes into the how-to-cheat category as it honestly only takes ten minutes to prepare. A note on ingredients: chair de tomate is a tomato puree and is available from supermarkets, though half a tin of tomatoes (drained) is a perfectly good alternative. Jalapeno peppers come sliced in jars, there are a number of makes on the market.

First of all drain the black beans and rinse them under cold running water. Now place half of them in the goblet of a food processor, then add the tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, lime juice and coriander. Season well with some salt and whiz the whole lot until it is quite smooth.
Next add the rest of the black beans and give these a short burst in the processor (this is to give the dip a little bit of texture). Now transfer it all to a bowl and fold in the crème fraiche.
Taste to check the seasoning, then serve garnished with some more coriander and wedges of lime, with potato wedge (or whatever else you fancy) to dip in.
