My bean dip brings all the boys to the yard
And they’re like
It’s better than yours…
Sorry. I couldn’t help myself. 😝
Seriously though, nothing brings people together quite like a good bowl of dip. Extra points for a dip that can be served warm on a chilly 🍂🍁 day.
With the holidays right around the corner, I always like to have something quick & easy on hand to bring with me for dinners and gatherings.
The added bonus is that it allows me to spend less time in the kitchen, and more time with my 💓 ones connecting over tasty holiday food!
So, I made a spicy black bean dip with my @Vitamixca Ascent blender.
It fits all the bills.
It’s meant to be heated and, yeah, beans can be that pretty. 👀✨
I just happened to have a can of black beans on hand, but if you’re into it, you could easily make this dip with any can o’ beans you have (it’s nice when the cans are BPA free and contain organic beans, just sayin’).
Scott and I happily gobbled this up with organic corn chips and veggies, but you use whatever bean dip delivery system you like.
If you make it, they will come.
1 tbsp coconut oil/ghee or butter
1 28 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
½ cup (+ 2 tbsp) water
Juice from 1 lime
1 small red onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 small jalapeno, seeded and chopped
2 tbsp chopped cilantro (optional)
1 tsp cumin
½ tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp each, salt and pepper
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
Optional: extra cheese and chopped peppers for garnish
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a small ceramic casserole dish or cast iron skillet.
Saute onions, garlic and jalapeno in coconut oil.
Add water and coconut oil first, then sauteed veggies and all remaining ingredients into Vitamix and blend on speed 1-3 until well combined and to a desired consistency (add more water if necessary).
Scoop mixture into pre-greased dish and top with cheese if desired.
Bake 30 minutes. Garnish with additional fresh cilantro and serve while warm.
