Cheesy Black Bean Dip


The Only Bean Dip Recipe You Will Ever Need

Pretty bold statement – eh. How can I be SOOOOO absolutely certain that this is the ONLY bean dip recipe you will ever need??? Three reasons.

#1. It’s freakin’ delicious.
#2. It’s so easy to throw together a trained monkey could do it.
#3. It’s only FIVE ingredients!

(Heh, can you tell where I grocery shop?)

Oh yes, you heard (well..erm…read) right. FIVE ingredients for the best bean dip ever. Those seven and eight layer dips, sure, they’re tasty. But who wants to go out and buy ALLL of those ingredients for one little dip??? Not I, I say. This dip is so simple it hardly constitutes a “recipe” but I’ll provide you a formal one anyway because I’m nice like that. ­čÖé

Cheesy Black Bean Dip

  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (8 oz) block 1/3 less fat cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups salsa (whatever ya like, I prefer hot salsa but not everyone in my house can take the heat)
  • shredded cheddar or mexican cheese blend
  • pickled jalape├▒os

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, add the cream cheese and salsa and mix until it’s combined. Add the black beans and mix until combined.

Transfer the mixture to a baking dish (or you can mix it right in the baking dish, too, if you hate to clean up like I do!). Top with as much cheese as you like and as many jalepenos as you like!

Bake for 25 – 30 minutes, or until the cheese is melted, brown and bubbly on top.

Serve with tortilla chips, or whatever dipping implements you like best!!
