Caramelized Onion Black Bean Dip with Bat Chips

 2 cans black beans, drained
 1 vidalia onion
 3 tbsp Colavita Olive Oil
 1 tbsp Colavita Balsamic Vinegar
 ½ cup sour cream
 1 tsp cumin
 1 tsp salt
 ¼ tsp black pepper
 Freshly chopped parsley and a dollop of sour cream for topping
Bat Chips:
 2 flour tortillas
 1 tsp smoked paprika
 0.50 tsp salt
 0.50 tsp black pepper
 1 tbsp Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 Bat-shaped (or other) cookie cutter
For the Dip:

First caramelize the onion. Slice it into long, thin strips. Heat 1 tbsp Colavita Olive Oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion to the pan and sauté, stirring only occasionally until the onion starts to wilt and turn brown, about 20 minutes.


Add the Colavita Balsamic Vinegar to the onion and sauté another 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.


In a food processor or blender, purée the caramalized onion together with the remaining ingredients until smooth.


Add more Colavita Olive Oil if the mixture seems dry.


Garnish with parsley, and a dollop of sour cream.


Serve with corn chips or special bat-shaped tortilla chips.* See instructions below.

For the Bat Chips:

Cut bat shapes out of each flour tortilla. Each flour tortilla should give you 6 to 8 shapes.


Mix together the smoked paprika, salt and pepper in a small bowl.


Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


Brush the tortilla pieces with Colavita Olive Oil, and place them on the prepared baking sheet.


Sprinkle them with the spice mixture.


Place the pieces in the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until they are crisp. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 2 minutes.
