Talin’s Red Kidney Bean Dip Recipe

Hello everyone, I haven’t written a recipe in a while, so I decided today I write about my Red Kidney Bean dip. It is how you make humus, but there are some things that are different into it. Here goes:

Ingredients/Quantity needed:

One or 2 large cans of 540 ml of Dark Red Kidney Beans. (washed thoroughly after opening)

4 tablespoons of tahini

1 to 2 teaspoons of sea salt (regular iodized salt is not good to use)

2-3 cloves of Garlic

2-3 tablespoons of Lemon Juice Squeeze

1 teaspoon of Ground Cumin

1/2 teaspoon of Sweet Paprika

2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

half-one cup of water….. or as desired texture, but for dip, it shouldn’t be too tender.

How to prepare:

Get a food processor, and first add in the tahini, Olive Oil, water, lemon and garlic. Process it very well until garlic is well pureed

then you put the ground cumin, sweet paprika, salt into the mix….. beat that very well.

then add the dark red kidney beans —– check to see for tenderness, and the dip should be in between dense/tender… not too much as long as its dip-able.


Makes a good snack, makes a good dish for parties and everything.

Bon apetit!

Have a great one!


Talin’s Specialty Home Made Chili — With Baked Beans


I have not written a recipe in a while, so I decided to write one today. Here is how to make my famous home made chili. It is very simple to make.

What you will need:

Lean Ground Beef, 1 teaspoon of Salt, half teaspoon of Pepper, 1 teaspoon of All Spice, half teaspoon of Cinnamon,  a pinch or two of Chili Flakes, 1 teaspoon of Ground Powdered Chili,  4 tablespoons of Tomato Paste, Baked Beans with tomato sauce(3 cans), 2 Red Onions, 1 Red Pepper Washed and Chopped into bite sized pieces, 1 Can of Red Kidney Beans with the fluid drained and washed, then strained..

How To Prepare:

In 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil on Medium Heat, Cook the ground beef and part the beef as much as possible until they get into bits, but not too too much. want to have some Chunky little Ground beef, after that is well done and cooked, add in the 2 red onions chopped. then add about 1/3 of water so that it will steam together and cook. Then add the Salt, Pepper, Cinnamon, All Spice, Chili Flakes, Powdered Chili, let that all cook with the ground beef and onions, then after you put in the 1 red pepper, then you add the Tomato Paste. After all that is cooked, put in the red kidney beans and baked beans together. Now then put half a cup of water so that it becomes a bit more liquidy. Then make sure that the chili is very hot. Put the temperature in between High and Medium toward the middle and then voila! This serves to about 4-5 people.

Depending on the mildness to the hotness of the chili, it all depends on a persons preference how much hot spices like the powdered chili and chili flakes to put in.
