Easy Bean Dip


This bean dip is easy. Three ingredients whizzed in the food processor and you're done. Perfect with baked tortilla chips, spread onto a tortilla, or veggies to be dunked into. No more need to buy store bought bean dip and I think this would easily replace refried beans as well.

Makes 6 Servings (Serving size = 1/4 cup)

Stars of the Show:
  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed               
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin (optional)
And Action:

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.

Claudia - The spicier the salsa the better this taste in my opinion. Nommy!

I love quick dips like this! Anything I can whiz up in the food processor is a winner in my book =)

Oh, how simple! I'm always nervous about what is in those pre-made bean dips, but this must be DELISH!
