Preparation / Directions:
INSTRUCTIONS: Rinse the beans and drain well; peel and slice the garlic cloves; drain the green chiles; drain and dice the red peppers. Place the beans in a large mixing bowl. Heat the olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, green chiles, roasted red peppers, scallions, and thyme. Cook until the garlic is pale golden, about 2 minutes. Pour the hot vegetables and oil into the bowl with the beans and add salt and pepper. Mash the bean mixture with two forks or a potato masher, or pulse in a food processor, until coarsely pureed. Serve at room temperature.
