Black Bean Dip

I love dips! They are great for get togethers with friends, bridal/baby showers, parties, holidays, or just plain old lazy weekends! I really can't tell you enough how much I love dips! I am always trying out new recipes and can't seem to keep up with all the ones I have bookmarked to make! I actually made this dip several months ago, just never got around to blogging about it. This dip was fantastic! A huge hit for everyone who tried it. It had a hummus texture, but a completely different taste. I loved the kick the jalapenos and cilantro added. I served mine with Fritos, which I think is the best way to enjoy this dip, but you could serve it with your favorite type of cracker as well. Oh and just to warn you, you may want to plan on doubling this recipe, because YES it IS THAT GOOD!!!
Black Bean Dip
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
3 pickled jalapeños (about 3 T diced)
2 T lemon juice
1 t salt
1/4 c stock (chicken or veggie)
1 small red onion, diced
1 T chopped cilantro

Combine the beans, jalapeños, salt and lemon juice in the food processor. Add the stock and pulse until incorporated. Stir in diced onions and cilantro. Serve with Fritos.


  1. Oh my! I love black bean dip and cannot wait to make this - this weekend! Quick question: could I make it with regular jalepenos instead of pickled jalepenos?

  2. You are going to LOVE the dip! I don't know how it would taste using fresh jalepenos (it would definitely be spicy :o) so I wouldn't use as much. But I am sure it would still taste great! Let me know how it turns out.

  3. This sounds delicious and healthy! I love black beans.

  4. Hello again! Just wanted to let you know my husband and I made this last night. Delicious! We both had leftovers for lunch and can't wait to make it again! We ended up using pickled jalapenos and doubled the cilantro. Yum! Thanks again!

  5. I want to dive into that bowl. Gorgeous dip!
