The "Wait—That's Yogurt?" Veggie Dip

The Lightened-Up Mexican Dip
Black beans, simmered in a bit of water with onions and spices, turn silky smooth when you puree them in a food processor. Chipotle chilies add a smoky note, with just a touch of heat. It's great with baked tortilla chips (which are surprisingly easy to make at home).
