Kaya’s Yucatan Hot Bean Dip

Well I haven’t tried out this recipe yet, but apparantly it’s the real deal from Pittsburgh magazine.   For those not familiar, Kaya is a restaurant in Pittsburgh that serves Caribbean food.   I just had the dip at Kaya for lunch today and it was excellent, highly recommend trying it if you go there.   Updated: My experience with this recipe was good… I decided to puree 2 cups out of the three, next time, I’ll probably follow the recipe then make sure to drain both the peppers and the beans thoroughly.   The results were a little too liquidy for a dip, but the taste was excellent + spicy.   Maybe experiment by adding a little more beans.


– 1/2 of a 7 oz. can of chipotle peppers
– 3 cups cooked black beans
– 1 cup mayonnaise
– 3/4 cup parmesan cheese
– 1/2 tsp. chili powder
– 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
– 1 tsp. salt (adjust to taste)
– Grated cheese (Monterey Jack, Chihuahua and mozzarella)
– Chips for dipping


1. Puree chipotle peppers with half the black beans.

2. Combine puree with remaining ingredients.

3. Place in heat proof container(s).

4. Top with grated cheese and heat in oven or microwave.
