1) (If using tamarind) Crack the tamarind pod shell off and remove any fibers. Using a knife, carefully scrape the brown, gooey, sweet flesh off the seeds from the pod. You should be able to get a full tablespoon of tamarind from two pods.

2) Add the drained beans, tomatoes, garlic, lime juice, tamarind/or honey and LA MORENA Sliced Jalapeno Peppers and reserved liquid to a food processor. Process until smooth.

3) Top with cilantro if desired. Serve with tortilla chips or hearty crackers.
