Pinto Bean Dip


_The following recipe looks a LOT like my hummus recipe (in fact it IS the same recipe but with pinto beans instead of chickpeas). It has a totally different taste. I am not sure if I will go back to chickpeas after this!

1 can (15oz) pinto beans (drained, but pour about 2-3tbsp of the bean water into the blender)
2 servings (2 oz) fat free feta cheese
3 or even 4 servings of roasted red peppers (to taste)
1 lemon: zest and juice

Optional: 1 chipotle pepper, seeded OR cayenne pepper (sprinkle)
Total calories: 400

Serve to company with celery sticks (and surrounded by acorn squash!), use as a "salad dressing", pour over chicken, use in a sandwich....the possibilities are endless. Unfortunately it's rare that I don't gobble up all of this in two servings.
