This is a great dip, but I had a few changes. First off, take away the veg. oil, there is no need for it. Remove the garbanzo beans. Replace with chili (spelling?) beans. Double the lime juice. Salsa increased to 12oz, and add a teaspoon of chives (or one shoot of freshly chopped scallion [green onion]). Add 2 (or 3) chopped, pickled jalapeños. Add a pinch of salt and a bit of ground black pepper. Much better! :D 4/5 for my recipe. I will be modifying again next time. Will update.

This recipe didn't have much flavor and I didn't like the taste of the garbanzo beans with the chili powder. The recipe tastes mainly of chili powder. I will not be making this again.

This took 5 minutes to throw together. My husband and I LOVE it, as do my kids!! Instead of parsely use fresh cilanto! Also experiment with other beans! Great recipe!

Although I have not made this recipe yet, it sounds quite tasty! I will be making it with raw, sprouted beans and home made salsa with fresh peppers and cilantro to fit my raw vegan lifestyle. I'll post when I have done the taste test. :)

This is awesome as a dip on tortilla chips! Instead of the chili powder, I added 4 shakes of Mrs. Dash's Southwest Chipolte seasoning. It was delish!!!! I am making again right now!!!

I'm always on the lookout for new bean recipes, and this one was pretty good. I'm only making meals for two, and I used dry beans, so I cut down the amount of beans by half. I didn't have any salsa, so I chopped up a few tomatoes.. (they weren't overly juicy, so it still seemed slightly lacking in the liquid department.. but that was my fault..) I made a basic pico de gallo as the salsa, (tomatoes, jalapeno, onion, lots and lots of cilantro and garlic). I used the full amount of everything else, and I added half a red pepper, and half a yellow pepper. Hubby said that he liked it a lot, but it was missing 'something'... I think it was salt... because I used dried beans.. I'll probably make it again.. but my recipe box has SOOOO many recipes in it that I want to try... who knows when I'll get around to it.. Thanks for the recipe!

This was quite good! My boyfriend made it for just the two of us, so we used one can of 6 bean blend and scaled everything else down. It had a great spicy flavour and the corn was the best part, a great contrast to the texture of the beans. Next time I'll add cilantro, I think it would go perfectly.
