Delicious & Easy Black Bean Dip

A few years ago, we went to Florida and I got one of my favorite meals to date: Black Bean Soup. Ever since then, I absolutely love using black beans (especially over pinto beans) when I can in recipes. And easy recipes like this Black Bean Dip are definitely some of my favorites.

I’m not sure what it is, but I love dips. Hummus, salsa, ranch, seven layer – you name it, I’ve most likely had it, made it and eaten it. Dips are one of the only ways I eat veggies raw, too. And when I can bring a little bit of Mexican flare into it? Yes please!

This Black Bean Dip is the perfect mix of spices and beany, fiberous goodness. It has a ton of flavor and isn’t spicy which is just right for my taste buds. But if you want to kick it up a notch or two, add in some jalapeños or cayenne pepper!
