Spicy Black Bean Dip

Spicy Black Bean Dip



  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 15.5 oz Black Beans
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, halved with seeds for extra spice
  • 1 Chipotle pepper from the can, optional
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice, plus more if desired
  • 3 tbsp salsa
  • 1.5 tsp taco seasoning
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro
  • Cauliflower Potato Chips


  1. Drain the black beans and pour into a microwave safe container, Microwave for 30 seconds to soften.
  2. Add all the ingredients to a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a blender. With a blender, it will become completely smooth like hummus without any chunkiness.
  3. Pulse for 10 seconds at a time. Add in 1 tbsp of water as needed to allow the dip to blend. I usually add up to 4 tbsp. Remember, you want the dip to remain thick and creamy.
  4. To serve cold, just garnish with chopped tomatoes, chopped jalapenos, chopped cilantro and cotija cheese. To serve warm, microwave of bake until warm. Garnish and serve with chips!
