Black Bean Dip is the tastiest appetizer and ready in just 30 minutes! Make ahead instructions for stress-free recipes.

Beans, beans, they’re good for your heart. The more you eat, the more… well, you know. Beans really are one of our favorite healthy foods. They’re packed with fiber and protein, and taste absolutely delicious when prepared properly. This is the dish we bring to every gathering as we try to focus on nutrition and health. I know I can still have something totally amazing without sacrificing flavor. You don’t have to give away the secret, though, other people will just think it’s a great appetizer, not realizing it’s actually good for them.

Black Bean Options:

To keep this recipe even easier, go ahead and use canned black beans instead of whole beans.

Spice Grade:

You can increase or decrease the heat by removing or leaving the seeds in the jalapeños. You can also add extra jalapeños to the adobo sauce for extra heat.

Pro tip:

If your black bean dip is too thick, you can always thin it out with water or chicken broth. Just be sure to add the extra liquid slowly to make sure you don’t make it too runny.

What if I don’t have an immersion blender?

Don’t have an immersion blender? no problem. When ready to blend, simply transfer your ingredients to a regular blender and blend to desired consistency. Make sure your blender has a vented lid before attempting to blend. For safety, you cannot mix hot ingredients in the non-vented lid.

Service suggestion:

Serve the black bean dip with chips as a delicious appetizer, or just as a side dish for a Mexican-themed dinner.
