i was making tacos once and happened to have a hunk of squash about to go bad and a single purple cayenne pepper. i had no idea what to do with them, so i added them to the black beans. again today i found myself with a half an acorn squash and too many jalapenos. in my defense, this was not supposed to be a dip. i meant to make soup, but i started with dried beans and i guess they soaked up some of the water during the cooking process and something much thicker than soup happened.
