Black Bean Dip

Dips are an essential staple in my kitchen. Some of my favourites include beet hummus, lemon hummusbaba ghanoush and sweet potato hummus. I always make at least one dip a week for snacking with vegetables, for sandwiches or simply to enjoy in any dish.

I’ve got a new dip that I am loving lately. I’ve been making it so often to enjoy especially in burrito bowls and tacos. This black bean dip is so incredibly easy to make. Like all dips, it’s ready in minutes with a little blending.

This black bean dip is similar to a refried bean spread, without the frying. Adding the caramelized onions adds an extra depth of flavour.

It’s delicious as a dip with tortillas chips or veggies and equally delectable as a spread in sandwiches, on toast, on pita bread, in burritos, in tacos, and soooo much more! My FAVORITE ways to eat this spread are in chicken burrito bowls or tostadas with easy pulled chicken.

I love adding this black bean dip to breakfast tacos with scrambled eggs, chopped tomatoes or salsa, grated cheese and parsley, all in warm corn tortillas.

You will need:

black beans

diced onion

lime juice

extra virgin olive oil
