  • ½ tsp
    onion powder
  • ½ tsp
    garlic powder
  • ½ tsp

    ground black pepper

This bean spread really does it for me!
I had no Chipotle sauce, so I subbed it with sambal and soy sauce. It worked just as well!
For those who do not have a chopping machine: mine is broken so I used a masher (in the Netherlands we use it to mash our stamppot). Turned out fine!
I am thrilled to have this one in my repertoire. Thank you!

PUL Team - Oct. 16, 2022, 7:08 p.m.

Hey Dagmar! Thank you for sharing the lovely modifications. We're so happy the recipe was enjoyed 😃


Shriya - Aug. 30, 2022, 4:24 a.m.

Another amazing recipe, I ended up using chickpeas for the recipe but it was amazing even with mexican seasoning (didn't have Chipotle in adobo sauce)

PUL Team - Aug. 31, 2022, 5:05 p.m.

Sounds like delicious substitutions! Thanks for taking the time to share, Shriya 😊


Belinda - June 12, 2022, 4:55 a.m.

I absolutely love this recipe. I've made it three times so far and will be making it many more! Thank you!

PUL Team - June 15, 2022, 6:57 a.m.

Woohoo! So happy to hear, Belinda, thank you :)


Shagun - June 9, 2022, 10:11 p.m.

I ADORE this recipe. I've already made it perhaps 6 times and everyone in the household loves it. I've already bookmarked (most) recipes to try this summer. Thanks for everything you do!

PUL Team - June 11, 2022, 4:35 p.m.

So thrilled to hear, Shagun, thank you! Happy cooking 🤗


Erica - June 9, 2022, 6:55 p.m.

This chipotle bean spread is everything. I spread this on toast / a sandwich for a quick and portable lunch. Thanks for always coming up with new protein-packed sandwich spreads.

PUL Team - June 10, 2022, 11:47 p.m.

Thank YOU, Erica, for the kind words and helping make our PUL community so incredible 😃


Ema - April 19, 2022, 9:09 p.m.

Delicious, thank you❤️


Diana - April 11, 2022, 7:56 p.m.

This is the first PUL recipe I’ve tried, and it was amazing! This will be on regular rotation in my house! Definitely encouraged to try more of your recipes now!! (I think I’ll try the traditional family ones!)

PUL Team - April 11, 2022, 9:44 p.m.

Awe we're so happy to hear, Diana, it means so much! Happy cooking 😃


Sarah - April 3, 2022, 8:12 p.m.

Hi Sadia,
Quick question, when you use the chipotle in adobo sauce, are you just using the sauce or do you use the actual chipotle peppers too? Thanks!
We are huge fans of your recipes and have so many favourites. Thanks for doing what you do! With love from Canada ( Toronto).

PUL Team - April 3, 2022, 11:47 p.m.

Hey Sarah, thanks for the kind words! We just add the sauce, but you could add the whole peppers as well if desired. Sending love to Toronto 🙂


Allyson - March 27, 2022, 4:47 p.m.

I'm always willing to try new avocado toast variations and this one did not disappoint! I love the chipotle flavour and also love that it's also high protein too! Thanks for the inspiration PUL! I might try to experiment with other high-protein additions to avocado toast. Maybe with an edamame dip/spread blended with some tahini, miso, and ginger... wish me luck haha :)

PUL Team - March 27, 2022, 9:32 p.m.

Ohhh such lovely ideas, Allyson, do let us know how the experimenting goes 😍


Eunny - March 26, 2022, 1:08 p.m.

What a lovely avodado toast! May I ask what the little food processor is in the video?

PUL Team - March 27, 2022, 12:10 a.m.

Hey Eunny, thanks for the question! That would be a hand blender that we got from a local shop in the Netherlands. It's the Tefal brand: https://bit.ly/tefal-mixer. You can learn more on hand blenders in our kitchen essentials article if you're interested and haven't already seen it yet: pickuplimes.com/article/kitch…


Vicky - March 25, 2022, 8:08 p.m.

This recipe is fantastic, I’m officially addicted! I swapped cannellini beans for great northern beans and it still turned out great. Very filling and it gave me sustainable energy throughout the rest of the day. Highly recommend and will make again!

PUL Team - March 26, 2022, 11:10 p.m.

Mmm sounds lovely, Vicky, we're so happy to hear 😃


Terezie Payer - March 24, 2022, 6:48 p.m.

This is so good, oh so good! Thanks for sharing the recipe. It was a great success with my husband, lol.

PUL Team - March 25, 2022, 1:19 a.m.

We're so glad it was enjoyed, Terezie, thank you!


Sarah - March 15, 2022, 3:37 a.m.

This recipe saved us after we both got home late from work! Very satisfying and quick! We also topped with toasted sunflower seeds. Our food processor broke, but mashing the beans worked just fine. Thank you so much, Sadia & PUL Team!

PUL Team - March 15, 2022, 6:09 p.m.

Hey Sarah, we're so glad the recipe was enjoyed. How unfortunate to hear about the food processor as well - we hope it wasn't from this recipe! Mashing is a lovely idea in any case 😊


Sabina - March 15, 2022, 12:34 a.m.

Hi Sadia, what can I substitute a chipotle adobo sauce with?

PUL Team - March 15, 2022, 6:07 p.m.

Hey Sabina, you can substitute the chipotle adobo sauce for a hot sauce of your choosing, such as Tabasco. Do let us know how it goes if you give the recipe a try 😊
