This Easy Black Bean Chipotle Dip recipe is healthy, but it doesn’t really feel healthy. And if you ask me, those are some of the best party foods. It’s spicy and smoky, but while the flavor is rockin’, the coolest thing is how quick it is to make.
You will need a blender or a food processor to make this dip — you are going to mix up a 30 ounce can of black beans, that has been drained and rinsed, with some cilantro, garlic, lime juice, olive oil, and salt. The spicy magic happens when you add in some canned chipotle peppers. I recommend going with 2 chipotle peppers with some of the adobo sauce, as long as they aren’t too big (see my photo below).
Blend it up and give it a taste. If you want it spicier, feel free to add another pepper or two.
After blending all the ingredients today, it’s ready to go! I do recommend letting it sit for about 30-60 minutes to allow the flavors to marry a bit, but if you are in a rush, it won’t hurt to dig in right away.
We like this Easy Black Bean Chipotle Dip recipe with tortilla chips and bell pepper strips, but you can use other fresh vegetables, crackers, pita bread, etc. It’s also great as a spread for sandwiches or wraps.
