Homemade Bean Dip

Peanut Butter and Jelly.  Peas and Carrots.  Fritos and Bean Dip.  The classic combinations!  We don't eat it often, but occasionally my college friends and I get together and go on an all-out junk food pig tour.  You know with Ding Dongs, and Fritos and Bean Dip.  Classic dorm room food.  I'm not proud of that dirty little secret, but there you have it.  So I thought if I made it myself, that would somehow elevate it to at least a semi-gourmet status.  It's super easy to whip up, and very tasty.  Grab some chips and a cold beer and you have yourself a great little snack. 
Homemade Bean Dip...OLE!
The Homemade Bean Dip Fiesta
Combine drained pinto beans and jalapenos
in a food processor.  (I doubled the recipe for a
get together.  Thus the zillion jalapenos pictured.)
Add pickled jalapeno liquid.
Add salt, sugar and other seasonings.
Combine on high speed until smooth.
Grab a beer and some chips and
Party Like It's 1999!
