INGREDIENTS FOR THIS SIMPLE BLACK BEAN DIP RECIPE
This easy black bean cream cheese dip has just a few simple pantry staples, but together they blend up to create an unbelievable flavor. Here’s all you need:
- garlic cloves – you can toss the whole cloves into the blender or food processor.
- canned black beans – make sure to drain and rinse the beans before adding them to the mixture
- pickled jalapeños – you can also use green chiles if that’s what you have on hand. The biggest difference between the two is their heat. Jalapenos are generally spicier than green chiles
- salt and pepper – to taste
- cumin – this earthy, nutty spice adds a warm, slightly lemony flavor to the bean dip. Absolutely delicious!
- hot sauce – to taste. I like to add about half a tablespoon to this dip, but you can try a teaspoon or so until it has the heat you like.
- cream cheese – make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature so it will mix easily with the other ingredients. If it’s too cold, the cream cheese won’t blend as smoothly.
HOW TO SERVE THIS BLACK BEAN DIP
- Top this easy black bean dip with with sour cream and some fresh cilantro.
- Serve it as part of your Taco Tuesday with these Instant Pot Chicken Tacos, the Best Margaritas, and some Pico de Gallo!
- You could serve it cold right out of the food processor (that’s how I had it!), or you could stick it in the oven for a half hour and serve it as a warm black bean dip.
- Serve with your favorite tortilla chips, veggies, warm tortillas, just about anything! It’s such a versatile dip, you could use it a million different ways.
