Spicy Black Bean Dip

When I make a meal I like to add a lot of “accessories” to it. Lime, cilantro, cheese… basically I like to make my meals as high maintenance as possible. But who likes a boring meal amiright?

At work this week I was squeezing a lime into my meal and some guy in the office asked, “did you really pack a lime with you to work?” Why yes I did. Did you pack your same boring sandwich? (Totally kidding I didn’t ask that, I just laughed and wondered why packing a lime to work was weird #highmaintenancemeal)

I am just not interested in having a mediocre meal, I feel like that’s just a punishment. And plus, my taste buds deserve more respect than that

So I like to get creative with my meal “accessories” whenever I can and who can argue with eating bomb food? Definitely not this gal!

Lately I have been on a black bean dip kick, and it is a kick I don’t mind being on!

This dip adds such an amazing smokey flavor and texture to any meal. I put it in my burrito bowls (pictured), tacos, on bread with eggs – you name it I’ve probably done it! No matter how you play with your bean dip, I promise it won’t disappoint!

To make this yummy meal accessory:

In a food processor combine

  • 1 can or black beans rinsed and drained
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • Handful of cilantro
  • 1 1/2 tsp of cumin
  • 1 tsp of onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp of chipotle chili powder
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1/4 of a jalapeno seeded (can omit if you prefer less spice)
  • salt and pepper to taste


Happy Spicy Eatings!
