Ingredients

For the dip

1, 15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 Tbsp. toasted sesame oil
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
⅛ tsp. cayenne
1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
2 tsp. sugar
¼ cup chopped green onions, plus more for garnish
Black and white sesame seeds for garnish (optional)

For the wonton chips

Wonton wrappers
Olive or canola oil cooking spray
Sea salt
Oil, if frying

Directions

For the dip

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend until you get a smooth paste. If necessary, stop the blender or food processor to scrape down the sides with a spatula. After blending, some pieces of the green onions will still be visible.
  2. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with black or white sesame seeds and chopped green onions.
  3. Serve with baked or fried wonton chips.

For the chips

  1. To bake, preheat oven to 400°F and cut wonton wrappers into small triangles. Spray chips lightly with olive or canola oil, sprinkle with sea salt, and arrange in a single layer on a foil- or parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 7 minutes or until golden brown.
  2. To fry, heat oil on stovetop or in fryer to 400°F and fry until golden. Drain on paper towel and sprinkle with sea salt.

Tip: After chips have cooled, they can be stored in a plastic storage bag for several days.
