I made a dish that was essentailly a bean paste topped with fried onions, and although it did look like a dip, it wasn't served or eaten as one. It was lind of like eating refried beans as a side dish.

Well, I was paraphrasing. Apicius and others have you mashing the beans
for a dish; and one usage says "bean meal" (apicius for clarifying muddy
wine) Apicius in one example says to smoothen them (make into paste?) and
add hard-boiled egg yolks, broth, wine, honey and vinegar, and fry 'em in
One thing I'm wondering; wouldn't this be more of a dip?
Still, as I was doing beans because I have some, but they're the wrong
kind, I may have to make something else for the SCA potluck.
